Don’t read this book—play it! Move! introduces an ingenious way to help kids get the 60 minutes of active play they need each day. This uniquely-shaped board book combines imaginative play with movement. Hold it up to your face like a big pair of jaws and roar and stomp like a dinosaur. Hold it by the handles to swing in a hip-to-hip motion while rowing like a canoe. Or hold on tight and spin like a flying saucer. Lively rhyming text and colorful illustrations prompt young readers to perform physical activities utilizing the book’s die-cut holes and handles.
