From the team behind the high-energy children’s musical and fitness group Lolly and YoYo, MOVE! is a unique board book unlike any your child has read. It’s a book that combines imaginative play with movement. Hold it up to your face like a big pair of jaws and ROAR and STOMP like a rampaging dinosaur. Hold on tight and SPIN like a flying saucer weaving through an interplanetary race. MOVE! will excite the imaginations and inspire the movements of kids and parents alike. Lively rhyming text and colorful, spirited illustrations by award-winning artist Luke Flowers prompt young readers to perform physical activities utilizing the book’s die-cut holes and handles. Now lie down on top and paddle the floor. Jump on board and you’re SURFING to shore! Can you FLUTTER this book like butterfly wings? And fly around looking for colorful things? This is a book that fosters a love for reading and for physical activity. It’s the book Press Here meets the game Twister with a little yoga thrown in—designed to keep kids healthy, happy, and having fun.
A board book that is interactive like you can’t quite find elsewhere! This book really aims to ignite your little one’s imaginations, and it’s fun to have the interactions be so unique. My only worry is that some of the instructions tell you to stand on the book or lay on it — it is a board book, so more sturdy than others, but I don’t love the idea of standing on the pages and not sure how long this book would last with all the activity (especially if it’s hard for little ones to remember not to do on any other book).
