      Great movement book. This book combines playful illustrations with rhymes that hop, skip, and jump. The text features short verses about different situations or emotions and the dances that could go along with them: "How can you dance when/one foot's sore?/Dance with the other foot/touching the floor." They are followed by instructional verses in red: "Dance on the other foot./Spin on the other foot./Hop on the other foot./Dance, spin, hop!"

      I really wasn't a fan of this book because it was just a different story book than I was used to. I would read this book to either toddlers and preschoolers and then have them dance out the actions. It would be really good book to read for when the children can't sit still and they need to move their bodies around and get the 'sillies' out. I would tell teachers who teach younger kids for something to get them moving.

      I didn't love this one as much as some of his others. I wished that there were more consistency within the story-- both in the ways that people were limited in dancing (because they were hurt or because they were in water) and in the ways they ended up dancing (like animals, for example). But still cute. I thought the illustrations were fun, though.

      Some of the passages of this book flow and carry themselves forward with child-like rhythm. Other passages fall flat and lose the consistency. A great concept, but an unfortunately rather loose execution.

      Clare loved dancing along to the different dance on each page. The illustrations were a little boring. It wasn't very bright in color, which made it hard to see some of the scenes.

      a get up on your feet and move like the characters in the book. A paragraph on each page and then a dance or movement to accompany it. A little long but the movement makes it go.
