Sometimes, it is difficult to get preschool age children to sit still for the entirety of a book. Instead of fighting that fight, why not harness their natural enthusiasm with these books that encourage movement and interactive participation?
- Animals Move by Jane Whittingham
Bright, full-color photographs show animals engaged in movement, as well as young children mimicking that movement.
- Dance Like a Flamingo by Moira Butterfield, illus. by Claudia Boldt
Features 12 animals from around the world, accompanied with simple movement steps, perfect for developing coordination and listening skills in young readers.
- There’s an Alien in Your Book by Tom Fletcher
Encourages the reader to shake, tilt and wiggle the book to help launch the alien back into space.
