This was a surprisingly long board book! I was quite pleased with how many different actions it offered, including funny ones like flap your elbows and sleeping at the end. I got it for my 1 year old daughter because I thought it would be a good intro to body parts and movement, which it is. I was happily surprised that my 4 year old loves to play along, too. It's a really fun book and I highly recommend it, especially for the low price!

I love reading this book with my 18 month old! He's just getting to the age where he "gets" the actions and can do most of them with a little bit of prompting. Even though he still doesn't talk much, this has helped us know that he understands what we're saying, and we enjoy watching him learn. Great book for little ones.

My son loved this book when we first checked it out from the library. It shows the different characters doing different actions and so my son joins in and dances. Fun!

We started to read this book to our son when he was about 1, and now that he's 1.5 he can participate in the actions. Our favorites are "honk your nose", "wiggle your ear" and "make a muscle" - his motions are HILARIOUS! We also throw in extra made-up gestures when he's especially attentive. A few weeks ago I took this book to daycare with him, and the entire group had fun acting it out together. The daycare provider liked it so much that she bought her own copy the next day! A few gestures that were tricky for him, like "wiggle your fingers" and "shrug your shoulders" are getting better with group encouragement.

My great-granddaughter can barely stay on her little feet while listening to this book! Bless her heart, she tries so hard to dance, but can't quite make it. She can get a leg up....but when she tries to shake it, down she goes! At first she cried when she fell down, but after a little loving and a little coaching, she thinks its so funny that she often falls on purpose, and laughs and laughs. Of course, everyone in the room laughs too, so I would gladly say that SHAKE A LEG is being greatly enjoyed by everyone in the family!

my son (2 years old) loves this book - he likes to "read" it to us, as he has the whole thing memorized... his daycare has the version with "paper" pages, but i bought the board book version expecting (accurately) that he'd read and re-read it and it would see it's share of love...

My 1 year old loves this book, and I love reading it with him. He learned more body parts (like elbows and ankles) and it's so much fun to watch him act it out. My favorite is when he knocks (with his fists, like on a door) his knees! lol

This book is pure, simple fun!

I had this book for my kids when they were little (now 15 & 18 years old). They loved this book because it was interactive: shake a leg, rub your tummy, honk your nose, etc. Now I babysit my neighbors 18 month old and thought he'd love this book too.
