A fun book to use when working on onomatopoeia, vivid verbs and playfulness with text and font. Words dance as much as the animals in this book! It feels joyful and vibrant.

From PreK to 2nd this is a very fun read as the kids act out the movements  and remember what each animal does as frog says "Wheee, can you dance like me, down by the cool of the pool.  The frog, duck, cow and  others dance off the pages as kids dance around the floor. A very fun read both by a single students or a group.   Wheeeeeee!
