Bouncing here
Bouncing there
A lively, loving book to share.

Join in this rhyming, rollicking romp to the zoo and watch animals jump, tumble, and flip with bountiful, bounciful energy.

Vibrant images convey the joy of a wonderful day that ends with time to bounce into bed and dream.

The playful verses are fun to read aloud. (For even more pleasurable sharing, try substituting your child's name in the very first line.)
