Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The much-loved classic from Lorinda Bryan Cauley is given a new look and feel in this lively board book. Perfectly suited for a younger audience, Clap Your Hands introduces preschoolers to the world of dance and the fun of games. Follow a group of joyous animals and exuberant children as they play along with Cauley, clapping their hands and stomping their feet. Clad in adorable threads, like overalls, jump suits, wacky ties, and polka-dotted socks, the lively group will captivate readers. Expressive features on both the animals and children will also mesmerize little ones. From somersaults to silly faces, toddlers will be having fun in no time!
Publishers Weekly
The rhyming couplets of Clap Your Hands by Lorinda Bryan Cauley will inspire young ones to move their bodies just as the fully clothed jolly animals and their human companions do. ( June) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Get moving, you can't sit still because this board book urges kids to rub their tummies, pat their heads, reach for the sky, and touch their noses. It is a romp that includes a menagerie of anthropomorphic animals and a bunch of ordinary kids. If you need a rainy day activity to expend some pent up energy, this book will be an excellent resource. 2001 (orig. 1992), Putnam, $6.99. Ages 2 to 5. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
A host of fun-loving children and animals cavort through this interactive rhyming romp. Readers act out "Reach for the sky, wiggle your toes, Stick out your tongue and touch your nose." The pictures are so joyous that you will stop whatever you're doing and join in the fun. This is a winner for beginning readers, too.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- A crew of kids and animals, dressed in appealing combinations of comfortable odds and ends of clothing, responds to suggestions from Cauley's verse. They wiggle, purr, fly, tickle, somersault, kiss, and spin against the white background of double-page spreads. In a style much like Bruce Degen's, Cauley offers an ethnic mix of children tingling with energy and fun. Their unique motions and interactions imply plenty about the joy of movement and the value of individual interpretation. The jubilant mood of the characters' body language is reinforced by their facial expressions and captured in their eyes. The colors of the artist's mixed media (colored pencils, pastels, paints) are fresh and appealing. But what happens when this same blast of happy energy occurs and reoccurs in the same format page after page? A form of monotony--and, unfortunately, the verse's steady beat only reinforces it. Instead of staying caught up in the book's greater momentum, readers will start searching for details (How is this picture different from the last one?). It's too bad that this format isn't worthy of Cauley's vision; a book of hers that works 100% could be a whopper. In the meantime, let's applaud Clap Your Hands.--Liza Bliss, formerly at Leominster Public Library, MA

    Great book to read to a young child. My 13-month old granddaughter loves to follow the instructions : clap your hands, stomp your feet, rub your tummy, pat your head, etc. The book has great illustrations. And the book is colorful and engaging!

    We read and reread the book over and over.

    Strange creepy book

    I am so surprised by the good reviews for this book. This book was a gift for my 16 month old daughter. It is the worst children' book I have ever seen. The pictures are creepy and weird, and the words are too. I was hoping for a cute rhyming book with some sort of movement/following directions piece, but my daughter is not into it. She doesn't even like the pictures.Some are scary- like the gorilla carrying around the baby by it's shirt. Choose something else... Brown Bear, Brown Bear is a favorite, so are all the Sandra Boynton books.

    This is a great book for reading to a group of kids! It provides fun activities in a rhyming text and allows it's listeners to burn off some steam.
