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.
