Game Instructions

Baby claps hands
Baby rolls his hands*
Baby claps his hands
Baby rolls his hands
Baby claps his hands.

*Baby rolls his hands around each other - The rolling movement you make with your hands to imitate any rolling thing, a boulder rolling down a mountain, the spin of a car wheel, etc.


Monique wrote me, "I considered translating the last line as 'clap, clap, clap'. In French 'faire bravo' is to clap one's hands, and in fact, we seldom say 'bravo' without clapping our hands."



Many thanks to Tiphaine Woerth for recording this song for Mama Lisa's World.
