Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K—Seder's "scanimation" books utilize his recognizable gimmick to varied effect. As readers turn each page, the animal in the stripy circle seems to prance, slither, hop, or flap. The text is predictably simple: "Can you waddle like a penguin?/slip-slide-swoop!/Can you hop like a frog?/flip-flop-floop!" The book culminates with, "If you can waddle,/stomp or hop,/…you'd better run! The alligator's/gonna/getcha!" Unfortunately, there is no logic in going from being able to move like all the animals to being attacked by the alligator. However, all issues aside, the moving animals and the encouragement of audience participation is sure to appeal to the intended audience, who probably won't care about the lackluster text. Ultimately, this is a one-trick pony.—Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT

A great unique baby or toddler gift!

I got this book in its German language version and my 3 year old son, as well as my 10 months old son are fascinated by the book.

He can sit and look through "reading" them to himself for at least an hour.

We already own Gallop and Swing, so I bought Waddle as soon as I saw it was available. My 3 year old son loves these books. The are especially great to take on trips and for independent play. He can sit and look through "reading" them to himself for at least an hour. These make great gifts too as they are so unique and fun.

A very fascinating book for any age. Older ones will focus on how it works while younger ones just enjoy the movement. Best thing--no batteries!! Constructed so sturdy even young toddlers can handle it without damaging it(no chewing, of course!) I have 2 of Seder's scranimation books & grandkids frequently choose them. I own many children's books, but this one appeals to the broadest age of audiences.

Waddle is sure to delight not only the 4 to 8 year olds, but also the toddler who likes color and animation. The pictures are cute, the Scanimation delightful. Children will love the alligators, pigs and more! A great companion to his previous books Swing! and Gallop!: A Scanimation Picture Book (Scanimation Books).

More than just a unique picture book, Waddle is "must have" for the "Beginning -to-read" crowd. I'm a librarian in a K-12 school. Our beginning-to-read book section now includes Waddle, and it's a big hit. The large print, the alliteration and the clearly amazing pictures combine to give little ones just enough clues to decode the text - and have a lot of fun at the same time.

I purchased Waddle after enjoying Gallop with my two year old grandson. He loves both books.

I like the fact that some of the pictures in Waddle are in color.

Waddle, illustrated by Rufus Butler Seder, is just about the cutest book I've seen in a long time. I brought it home for Rory, 18 months old, and she immediately feel in love. She couldn't wait to turn each page and act out the movements of all the animals.

"Can you STOMP like an elephant?"

Yes she can!

This is a new favorite and stays close by for when Rory is visiting.

I'm off to get the complete set for our church's toddler room.Waddle!: A Scanimation Picture Book (Scanimation Picture Books)

Our 2-year old calls this "penguin book" because of the cover and LOVES for us to read it to him. If you don't know already, the animals make movements when you turn the page so it's not your ordinary kids book. Highly recommended!
