Rated 5 out of 5 by from Encourages Participation and Laughter I took this book out of the library a few weeks ago and my 2 year old ate it up! Normally she likes longer more involved stories, but this one encouraged her to participate with moving her body in different ways! I could really see her mind processing the different actions and the pride in her face when she mastered them! We would read this book first every night and get a good giggle out of it before settling down to some more serious story telling. I've now bought it for her for Xmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of Eric Carle's best! his is a fantastic book! The large, colorful pictures and the simple, clear text keep children bending and stretching right along with the animals! Still, unlike many of the reviewers who loved this for their one-year-olds, we found that this book didn't work for my active, not very verbal daughter when she was one (even though she sat for other books). We pulled it out again around the time she turned 2 and she LOVED IT. This book was a huge hit. Now at almost 4 it is still one of her favorites. Even if she's tired at bedtime she gets on the floor to do her donkey kicks along with the donkey! My older daughter also reported that this was one of her preschool teacher's favorite storytime books. I would say that for many children this book, despite it's deceptively simple pictures and text, is more appropriate for older children (age 2-4). This is a book I buy all the time for 2nd birthdays - It's always a hit! (especially good for active kids who prefer being "active" listeners!) This is an excellent choice for a book that will last kids for years!
