Readers are invited to move parts of their bodies in an interactive, call-and-response story, including wiggling their toes, flip-flopping their feet, and playing peekaboo with their hands. - (Baker & Taylor)

"Children are invited to move their bodies in this interactive, call-and-response story"-- - (Baker & Taylor)

Who says you have to sit still at story time? This book encourages toddlers and preschoolers to shimmy, shake, and stomp along with a story that's both fun and filled with layers of learning!

Who has wiggle-waggle toes? I do. Who has flip-flop feet? I do!

The girls and boys in this book have kissable noses, out-there elbows, big bold bottoms, and hokey pokey heads--which they crinkle, flap, shimmy, and shake. This joyful celebration of our amazing body parts encourages fun, high-energy learning about science, language, self-regulation and focus, and more!

Perfect for brain breaks and active story times! - (Random House, Inc.)

Booklist Reviews

High spirits and funny words set the tone in this crowd-pleasing picture book. In the rhythmic text, the opening section asks a series of eight short questions about body parts, such as, "Who has knockabout knees?" The answer is always the same: "I do." The concluding section establishes a new pattern: "Can you stomp your flip-flop feet?" "Yes, I can stomp my flip-flop feet." While many picture books challenge young children to sit still and listen, this lively book encourages them to move and respond. It's not surprising that Shiefman has teaching experience, since the text is well designed for reading to groups of kids as well as individuals. The Q&A format invites listeners to use their minds, while the silly sentences are designed to amuse them and set them in motion. Created with watercolor, colored pencil, and digital elements, Chessa's playful illustrations feature a large, diverse crew of preschoolers who appear in small groups in different settings and clearly enjoy frolicking about in response to the words. A cheerful change of pace for storytime fun. Preschool-Kindergarten. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
