Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Hower
This book is one of the classic stories in the "Little Golden Book" series. Children will enjoy this humorous story about the kinds of things that might happen if animals took gym class with children. The story begins with various animals sliding down a sliding board and participating in an exercising class with a group of happy children. It continues with elephants attempting to walk on a balance beam and giraffes doing chin-ups. A hippo gets stuck in a tire swing, and a tiger climbs a climbing rope. Children play on climbing bars with monkeys and jump over a lion's tail. The story concludes with all of the animals taking a shower. The lively illustrations will delight children and parents alike. The funny pictures and rhyming text will keep children of all ages engaged. Parents and grandparents are sure to cherish this classic story as they read and enjoy every page with a child. This would be a nice addition to any home library. Reviewer: Melissa Hower
