Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Lenticular seems to be in with children's books. It is a gimmick, but helps the board book stand out from the rest. The cover of this board book has an image of a monkey swinging from a tree branch. Movement is the subject and children are challenged to see if they can leap like a tiger, prance like a lion, gallop like a zebra, and swing like a monkey. All of these animals and more are at the zoo and a family is enjoying an opportunity to watch them all. A companion book is entitled Wiggle! Like an Octopus. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
