I picked this book up at the library the other day, and my daughter liked it so much I put it on her wish list. My daughter has a sensory processing disorder, as well as fine motor issues, and it's been great for her to try to trace the bumpy lines with her finger. The illustrations are really cute, the "story" is rhymey, it's not winning any Pulitzers, but it's readable.

The previous reviewers have said it all- this book is fantastic! The blue glitter lines throughout the book are inviting (I even love tracing the lines), and the retro illustrations initiate further conversation about the situations in the pics (eg.wind blowing, people waving, monsters hiding behind trees). The small details in the pics add a lot of interest. I primarily bought this book because monster pics were included, and I was not disappointed- they are plentiful and the bonus of the cool lines just creates an awesome book.

My elementary art students loved this book! It is a great way to introduce lines. They loved the monsters and the funny expressions the monsters had on their faces. The blue glittery lines helped them to follow the line in the book from page to page.

My K-2 students enjoyed the fun, bright illustrations and the lively prose. After I read it, we played "I Spy" for different kinds of lines in my classroom.

I used this book to introduce the variety of lines that can be created. It is a children's book, but I used it in a high school art class.

I use this book when I introduce my unit on lines. It's a fun read with good rhymes. My students love to act out the different types of lines and draw them in the air. It also has raised lines made from glitter which my younger students enjoy tracing with their fingers. One thing to know though- it doesn't use much conventional line vocabulary(straight, horizontal, vertical, diagonal, spiral, etc.), but it's good for getting the kids interested in lines and looking for them in the world around them. It's also good for getting the kids to invent their own line vocabulary and descriptors, to which you can add the conventional vocab later.

A bit of a rip off! I bought this book after having found it in the library. My students loved it because on each page the glittery blue line was raised from the rest of the page. This is, of course, enchanting for 6 year olds. I knew we would want to have the book in our class library after I had to return the checked out copy so I ordered it from Amazon. The copy I received did not feature the raised glittery blue line on ANY SINGLE PAGE--only on the cover. What a rip off! Had I known this I would not have bought it.

"Lines That Wiggle" is a book about lines that go all over the place and lines that bend.
Other kids would enjoy it, because some of the lines are rough and bumpy so you can feel them.
Some other lines are just smooth.
My favorite page is a page with a picture of a spider web, because it's the nicest picture in the book.
And I love the lines to hide.
This is a book for four-year-olds.
I give this book five stars.

Fun book to read with kids. It guides them to see art all around them. I used it in children's church with a lesson about the straight and narrow path and God is the great designer. The kids loved it.

This book is not that exciting. We have a daily large library of books in our home and my kids haven't asked to hear this one a second time. (They are 6 and 4). Maybe good for a 2.5 year old.
