dance along with The Animal Boogie. It was a mini reunion for me last week to see my friend Mary Ann at our local farmer's market. She works at the Methodist Church Preschool. Immediately she was attracted to this delightful, colorful paperback with CD for young children because she teaches preschool! She had asked me how the tune goes and so I shared with her just like the video below...

I love this book - and the CD too! Animal Boogie not only is entertaining, but it builds vocabulary and rhythm skills! My kids love to sing and dance to this book. At first, we didn't use the CD. We made up our own tune, and of course it would change each time we read the book. We would stand and dance as we went along. Then, we tired out the CD and decided that its' tune was far better than ours and we adopted it for all of our subsequent reads.
The only complaint I have is that we can't read this book at bedtime any more. It just gets us going and giggling that we are more awake than when we began!
The illustrations are so colorful and fun they truly enhance the read.
I would recommend Animal Boogie to any toddler through grade school!

This book was my first introduction to Barefoot Books and is what sold me on them! Not only are the illustrations unbelievably bright and colorful, but they are inclusive of multiple cultures and all abilities. Being a mother of a special needs child, I appreciated that! The CD that goes along with the book is so cheerful and the music is catchy and fun...it will have you dancing and jumping right along with your children. Be prepared...this will become a favorite in no time!
