Hip Hop-Inspired Baby Board Books

If you’re a long-time reader of Little Brim Baby, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of hip hop and rap music. During the year that I was a working, pumping, and commuting mom, I often entertained myself (and maybe, like, two of you) with inventing rap lyrics for pumping. My hashtag #RapLyricsForPumping here and on Instagram had over 300,000 views (give or take 300,000) and provided me with a lot of fun and motivation during those routine breaks. I highly recommend making up lyrics to your favorite rap song to get yourself through any day.

If you’re also a fan of hip hop, rap, and inventing lyrics to songs to fit any mood for your kids, you will love this Kickstarter project by Lily Owens featuring FRESHTAKEBOOKS.


FRESHTAKEBOOKS are child board books based on famous hip hop artists and songs. Jay Z, Biggie Smalls, and Snoop Dogg are visualized as Jay Bee, Piggie, and Snoop Frogg. The illustrations are fun and colorful and created by the talented London illustrator, Dale Edwin Murray.


Here’s a peek inside from the featured Kickstarter video.
