Team up April Pulley Sayre and Jackie Urbanovic and you're certain to have a hit on your hands. The hit just happens to be a new take on the popular children's song, "If you're happy and you know it."
In If You're Hoppy, Sayre runs us through a variety of 'animal' acts...
"If you're hoppy and you know it, you're...a frog." Or "If you're growly and you know it, you're a dog. Or a bear. OR—A TUMMY, OVER THERE!"
This is such a fun read, you'll find yourself bursting into song and singing it in your head days after you read it. Young readers will enjoy the hilarious animal twists and will be shouting out or displaying all the ways to show it--making a sound, stretching your toes, swinging your wings!
Urbanovic's illustrations are the perfect addition to this fun and lively book. I mean who can resist a frog making scary shadows on the wall?
