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 an octopus waving its arms in the water. With the emphasis on movement to help fight obesity, young kids can start imitating animals. This group consists of ones that like water. Scurry like a crab, swim like a dolphin, run like an alligator (yes these seemingly lazy floating creatures are capable of short bursts of speed). Waddle like a penguin and dance like a lobster are some of the other creatures and movements featured. At the end of the book they offer an invitation to jump right into the water. A companion book is entitled Swing! Like a Monkey. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
