Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Six animals demonstrate their preferred methods of locomotion with help from rectangular flaps that lift up or to the side. “Hi, fish, hiding behind the seaweed,” reads a typical line. “How do you move?” “I swim!” shouts the orange fish, bursting out from behind the thickly painted kelp when the flap is lifted. Bright colors, cheerful characterizations, and the animals’ punchy responses should win this book fans. Simultaneously available: Surprise! Up to age 2. (July)
From the Publisher

"Bright colors, cheerful characterizations, and the animals' punchy responses should win this book fans." —Publishers Weekly (June 25, 2012)
Kirkus Reviews
A playful exploration of animal movements animated by lift-the-flap technology. An unseen narrator asks a monkey, a fish, a turtle, a frog and a bird a simple question: "How do you move?" The animals answer with an "I" statement: "I climb!," "I swim!," etc. Although rounded corners would have been ideal, the easy-to-open flaps blend in nicely with the rest of the page. Better yet, as the flaps open, each animal's movements animate, flip-book fashion. The frog appears to jump and the birds fly as the flaps are opened and closed. Slegers' paintings, in fully saturated hues and with thick outlines, present cartoon animals in a simplified environment. Surprise, also by Slegers, uses strong colors as well and the same bold line, but here, animal mothers are asked where their babies are hiding, and the flaps, without the animation special effect, reveal the answer. A welcome lift-the-flap addition to the shelf. (Board book. 1-3)
