Animals move! Follow them as they swing, dance, float, leap, and slide from page to page, then learn why these animals move the way they do, from the jumping spider who dances to impress and then floats away on a thread of silk, to the roadrunner who flies, but not too far, and would rather run to catch its prey.

Overview

Animals move! Follow them as they swing, dance, float, leap, and slide from page to page, then learn why these animals move the way they do, from the jumping spider who dances to impress and then floats away on a thread of silk, to the roadrunner who flies, but not too far, and would rather run to catch its prey.

Illustrated in eye-popping cut- and torn-paper collages by Caldecott Honor artist Steve Jenkins, Move! is a playful introduction to motion in the animal kingdom that invites young readers to guess some of the unusual ways that animals get around.

Action is the name of the game, so Move!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In this eye-popping book illustrated with cut- and torn-paper collages, animals leap, swim, slide, swing, and waddle. . . . This book is gorgeous and educational."—School Library Journal, starred review

"Jenkins's cut-paper collages stand out against the white background, reinforcing the action and begging listeners to identify both the creatures and the verbs."—Horn Book

"The authors' astonishingly lifelike collages have animated an animal kingdom of reptiles, mammals and birds in books like "What Do You Do With a Tail Like This?" (which received a Caldecott Honor). Their new book is equally mesmerizing."—New York Times Book Review

"There's no denying that this is an extraordinarily pretty and child-friendly package." Kirkus Reviews
