Get kids thinking and moving with this picture book about creatures that love water as much as we do. Each spread shows an animal in a watery scene on one side and a child mimicking the animal’s activity on the other. From splashing like a dolphin to fishing like a heron, from snoozing like an alligator to hiding like a clownfish, the echoing images bring to life the real ways that animals behave—and reveal how there’s a little bit of animal in all of us.

The book closes with a “Guess What?” section that provides brief and quirky facts about the animals featured throughout.
