Product Description From Booklist Ages 2^-4. Carle's signature strong collages are put to good use in this book about movement. In each two-page spread a child is paired with an animal and kids are invited to make the same movement as the duo. Usually the movement is one that comes naturally to the animals--for instance an elephant stomps its feet and so does a girl with braids; a gorilla thumps its chest and so does a young boy. (Sometimes the connection is more tenuous such as the alligator wiggling its hips.) The oversize art set against expanses of white will intrigue young children who will enjoy both seeing the art and doing their own movements. The book will work well in story hours: a bit of wiggling and thumping will make a pleasurable break in the listening. Most libraries will want to shelve this with picture books.
