Lizard is dancing on clickity feet.

Introducing a get-up-and-dance toddler book-so catchy and rhythmic, you'll almost want to sing it.

Thumpity!), dancing animals, a singsong beat, and a guessing element just easy enough for preschoolers to anticipate. Marc Brown's artwork is bright, textured, and joyful, a collage of simple shapes for kids to find and name.

So grab a partner and tap your feet to this read-aloud picture-book treat.

This cheerful, rollicking book incorporates a guessing game into snappy rhymes that make it a great read-aloud. Tiny footprints and a partial view of a critter appear with the opening words "Tippity! Tippity! Little black feet! Who is dancing to that tippity beat?"; the next page answers the question with a bevy of dancing ladybugs. The pattern repeats with a number of different animals and finally with children, who imitate each creature's steps. Illustrator Marc Brown's high-contrast cut-paper collages, more reminiscent of Eric Carle's work than of his own Arthur books, are full of fun and energy. Everybody dance!

Lindsey Craig's text is great for singing or making up voices while reading along. Using words like "tippity" for ladybugs or "creepity" for a caterpillar allows children to explore phonological awareness.

Absolutely the coolest book... My kids love this book... get up and dance each indivicual animal with their own dance steps that they've made up... again and again... laughing each time. I use it when I need to change the mood and lighten things up.

A story time favorite for rainy days when we need to do some dancing inside.
