Bounce, Stretch and Wiggle by Doreen Cronin
I also found reading these three books enjoyable. The rhymes are fun and flow well, and the humorous illustrations were fun to look at. While these books are loads of fun for families to read, they also help parents promote early literacy. The rhymes help children develop phonological awareness, and acting out the various moves will encourage print motivation. In other words, know that they are learning while you’re having a blast!
Search the VBPL Catalog for Bounce, Stretch, Wiggle and other picture books by Doreen Cronin. For the slightly older set, take a look at Giggle Giggle Quack and Click Clack Moo, also by Cronin. Another picture book that inspires movement is Dancing Feet! by Lindsey Craig.
