Guessing who does - and doesn't - hop, fly, slither, swim, and crawl makes for some rollicking read-aloud fun! Frogs hop. Rabbits hop. Kangaroos hop. Cows hop. Cows hop?! No they don't, of course, and so begins the simple repetitive pattern of this clever book. From the cow that doesn't hop to the giraffe that doesn't crawl, animals on brightly colored page after page offer up giggles galore and a delightfully silly look at the way some creatures do - and don't - get around. When the time comes to guess who hops and flies and slithers and swims and crawls, observant young readers just might know the answer!

The first thing you notice about Katie Davis is her fantastic smile. It is gigantic and genuine. It is so broad that her eyes twinkle. Clearly, this is a woman who loves to laugh, and by extension, make others laugh. With her book, "Who Hops?", Katie Davis has achieved this goal. I don't know if it's because of the brilliant (as in colorful and clever) illustrations, or because of the wonderful silliness of this book, but every time I read this book to my one-year-old son, he lets loose with a great, big belly laugh. Because his laugh is one of my favorite sounds, this book has become one of my favorite books.
My 2 1/2 year old grandson immediately fell in love with this book. The pictures are eye-catching, and the verse is lovingly repetitive but with a twist! He anticipates the silly endings of each subject: who hops, who slithers, who swims, etc. and wants to read it over and over again. He willingly goes to sleep with a smile on his face. I recommend this book for anyone who has grandchildren and, of course, to parents for their preschooler. A rare gem!!!
