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!!!
