A "body movement multi-sensory inventive language poem" intended for children ages 2 to 5, Singily Skipping Along is playful and imaginative, asking the reader to pretend to be a tree, a whale, a spider, a cloud, and to find the many delightful ways they can move their bodies. The text uses some predictable and cumulative patterns but also includes joyful surprise patterns-and a healthy dose of nonsense-to stimulate children''s imaginations. Deanne Fitzpatrick''s hooked rug illustrations bring freedom and texture to the verse, and the result is a tactile and joyful classic Fitch book.
