National IndieBound Bestseller
“Hugely appealing…” —Shelf Awareness

A “Most Anticipated Book of 2017” Spring/Winter edition

"It's hard to decide what is the best part of Matthew Van Fleet's extra-sturdy interactive board book. Is it the toe-tapping rhymes, the adorable pastel-colored animals or the big tabs that, when pulled, make the gator's arms swing, the hippopotamus's skirt swish and the Bouncy Bunny's feet "hippy hippy HOP!" behind clear plastic windows? Preschoolers will chant along .with a menagerie of wild and barnyard animals ... hugely appealing."  Shelf Awareness

About the book...

Ohhhh boy, talk about a winner, this ultra-sturdy board book is amazing. Kids will be enthralled with its interactive components and adorable illustrations that invite them to get up off their keisters and join in on the frivolity.  

A tiny newborn chick doesn't know how to dance so the older, wiser animals take him under their wings, (and arms), and teach him their moves!  It is such a happy, lively book and it will have kids clapping their hands and simulating the moves right along with the animals.

"Hey, Chickie Baby," said the rhino at the door.  "how 'bout we shake some tail feathers out there on the floor?"

"I'd love to," said the little Chickie Baby, "but I can't.  I just hatched yesterday and I don't know how to dance."

Hula Hippo teaches Chickie how to shake his bootie, Bunny hops in to teach him the Bouncy Bunny Hop, Gater teaches Chickie the Gator Mashed Potater, and the Pigs give him a taste of tap dancing, of all things.   Kids make the animals move and dance by pulling on large, extra-sturdy tabs that are perfect for little busy hands to manoeuver.  The book is designed to motive, and get everyone involved with the story up and boogieing. "DANCE" with Matthew Van Fleet is his newest interactive book and I loved it from beginning to end.  It is truly a work of art.
