This used to be one of my favorite books to read for story time when I worked at the public library. The silly song appealed to preschool-age and school-age kids. I checked this book out from the library for my son when he was about eleven months old. I thought he would enjoy the playful, colorful illustrations. He did. However, I completely underestimated how much he would enjoy the silly song about the jungle animals. I had to read (sing) this book at least once a day every day for the three weeks we had it checked out. So I bought him his own copy. And he still loves the silly song and colorful illustrations, although, thankfully, I don't have to read the book every day anymore.
I would recommend buying this book in hard cover to hold up to many, many readings, and also buying the version with the CD -- especially if you are not especially skilled at reading music and carrying a tune. Also, after about the third time singing through the book in one day, your voice may appreciate a rest.

"The Animal Boogie" was about kids singing how the animals dance, how the bear goes shake shake and how all the animals boogie. I think this book is a really good one to read to little kids, it has a lot of colorful and bright colors that would grab the children's attention. I think the illustrator of this book could have drawn better pictures, not just stick figures. This book should have won a Caldecott award because of how attractive it is to the children. In my opinion this book is a really good book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Animal Boogie is an beautifully illustrated book that allows children to become involved in the story. I use it at story time nearly every week and the kids just love it. The author uses vivid illustrations that includes children from all walks of life. The kids love to shout out the animal from the clues and to act out the movement and of course to "Boogie". Great for Pre School, for a movement lesson, or to use for any animal theme in the classroom.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I read this book last year to my daughters' Pre-k class and asked all the children to participate as I read. Needless to say, they all loved it!!! I decided to pass the book on to their teacher. This year I've been asked to help makeup the reading schedule of parents for my daughters' Kindergarten class. Since I'm first to read, Guess what book I've chosen. 'The Animal Boogie'. This should get everyone excited for the coming year. This book has great Rhythm and Musical text which children love. Thank you!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I have a one year old and a two year old who both love this book. I have to read it at least 5 times a day. The sing song rhythm and the colorful pictures are engaging for readers of any age.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
