Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Toddler TwoStep, a catchy poem of counting and moving, will lead your young child to reading and dancing. Created in consultation with early childhood experts, you and your child act out movements shown in the book, like hopping, jumping, tapping and seven more motions that correspond to your child's natural development. Each motion leads naturally to the next, and soon, you and your child will be dancing. Written in rhyme with bright, cheery illustrations, it's fun and easy to memorize the text and recite it. You can use this book to encourage your child to act out a movement or simply count the children on each page. Part of an awardwinning program for children up to 3 years old, this book steps you into reading and walking together. 2000, Harper Collins, Ages 18 mo. to 3, $9.95. Reviewer: Dia L. Michels

PreS-Rhyme and rhythm inspire 10 engaging toddlers as they dance from 1 to 10 and back again. Beginning with two children, the text counts in pairs, introducing two new children and more energy with each couple. At 10, the rhyme proceeds to count backward to 1, with the energy level decreasing correspondingly. Rhymes such as "Four, three/Fingers high/Lift your knee/Touch the sky" are perfectly suited to one-to-two year olds, who can join in the action or simply listen. The whirling and skipping toddlers are joined by a cat that is at first alarmed by the dancing tots and afraid of being trampled, but that finally joins in with a "Jiggity-jive/Tiggle toddle." The simple cartoons depict smiling, animated youngsters with round faces and chubby thighs romping on solid-colored backgrounds. A joyful selection that guarantees participation.-Tana Elias, Meadowridge Branch Library, Madison, WI Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
