1 Review
Here comes a festival of brightly hued animals, and they all love to dance and sing! Better yet, a music CD is enclosed with this book, so kids can dance and sing along with the animals. The big ostrich dances with feathers that bounce . . . the silly snake slithers with a hiss and a wriggle . . . the monkeys bop with a jump and a jiggle . . . and even the elephant dances with big stomping feet. This funny picture book with its music compact disc is for kids who love to dance--and if there are any boys and girls out there who don't like to dance, this book will change their minds. They can jump and jiggle, jive and wriggle. Doing the Animal Bop is certain to make them laugh and giggle. Big, extra bright illustrations on every page come with a humorous, rhyming text, and the enclosed CD provides the music!
