Toddlers are natural dancers, and they love to move! Release some of that endless toddler energy and help them develop balance and coordination with Stomp, Wiggle, Clap, and Tap. Moving along with the story will help stimulate little brains and provide a fun, creative way to build spatial awareness. Tons of colorful pictures offer toddlers visual clues for the movements, and the rhyming words make reading aloud feel like music.

Movement and motor skills—Little ones will begin by learning to isolate individual body parts, like their hands, hips, arms, and toes, then move their whole body.

Dynamic dancing—Toddlers will harness their imagination when they dance with silly moves like Prancing Pony, Flapping Chicken, and Twirling Pinwheel.

Keep the fun going—Explore a list of online dance videos and resources to help them keep moving and developing even when the book is finished.

Set the stage for an active childhood with this standout in books for toddlers.

Praise For…

“Rachelle does a phenomenal job taking young learners through a multisensory journey in her book! While interacting with the story, children will use all of their senses, and they will be motivated to follow the story and get their bodies moving. My two children (ages 3 and 6) were engaged and excited throughout the whole read-aloud. This book was exactly what they needed, and they want to hear and interact with the story again and again!” —Regina Silverii, M.Ed, early childhood and elementary education administrator

“During a time in children’s development when movement and music is critical for toddlers, this book demonstrates dance in a creative and fun way. I love how the author uses animals and rhyming lyrics to make the book easy to follow and fun. It’s so important to expose children to music at a young age, which is why everyone should read this book with their child.” —Allie Lasota, Zumbini with Allie music & movement instructor

“If you want a book that your toddler will want you to read over and over again, you need to get this book. Your child will be compelled to dance as you turn each page. And with every verse, your child will learn something—the nature of different movements, numbers of fingers and toes, distinguishing left from right, animal moves, and more. The illustrations by Alissa De Asis pop with enthusiasm as the children in the book reflect the diversity of people everywhere, with something critical in common—the joy of movement as a mirror of their lives.” —Eva J. Pell, children's author
