LEAP ... LAUGH ... PLOP

Author: Martha Swirzinski and Anita Tieman

Illustrator: Martha Swirzinski and Anita Tieman

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Whole Child Publishing, Inc.,

Material: paperback

Summary: This book has pictures of animals and movement activities to get kids moving and thinking. A short rhyme on each page spread is followed by three questions to exercise both the mind and body. This is a picture book that uses movement to engage kids with books.

Type of Reading: playtime reading, read aloud book, interactive reading

Recommended Age: read together: 4 to 6; read yourself: 6 to 9

Interest Level: 4 to 6

Age of Child: Read with boys 3 and 6 years old.

Young Reader Reaction: My 3-year-old had a hard time going along with the movements. My 5-year-old really enjoyed moving, acting like the animals, and answering the questions.

Adult Reader Reaction: This would be a great book for a preschool setting. I liked it better than their other book, Kick … Catch… Buzzzzz. This one has less wasted space on rhymes, and you can tell better what the animals are.

Pros: This is a fun way to get kids to move and think differently about how movement works.

Cons: The short rhymes are not well written.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow. This is a good book for the library, particularly a preschool or kindergarten classroom.
