Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS–There's not a lot of story here, but there is plenty of fun as a playful, rump-shaking pup leads toddlers through some of the many ways to move around: "Do you wake up with a wiggle?/Do you wiggle out of bed?/If you wiggle with your breakfast,/it might wind up on your head." The dog goes on to jiggle and dance with various objects and creatures before falling asleep beneath the moon. Menchin's lively, digitally rendered art incorporates elements of reality–photographic bits and pieces–that are well integrated into broad, bright cartoon illustrations. Cronin's nonsensical text is rhythmic and buoyant. Pair this sunny, silly book with Jonathan London's Wiggle Waggle (1999) or Katie Davis's Who Hops? (1998, both Harcourt) for an active storytime about animals in motion.– Kathy Krasniewicz, Perrot Library, Old Greenwich, CT

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Pres-K. It will be hard to stop a group of little ones or even a lone child from wiggling through this one; the text is that infectious. A spotted dog on the cover, vigorously working a hula hoop, leads children through a wiggling world: "Do you wake up with a wiggle? / Do you wiggle out of bed? / If you wiggle with your breakfast, / it may wind up on your head." The delightful cartoon-style, ink-and-watercolor artwork is highlighted by tidbits of collage. In the case of the above quote, the picture shows the droopy canine with a photograph of a pancake planted squarely on its head. Every candy-colored page features the funny, frenetic dog involved in some furious activity, and the sense of motion and movement is palpable each time. The text is occasionally labored: "Wiggle slowly when with polar bears. They're very wiggle shy." But the artwork picks up the slack so well that kids won't know what to do first: wiggle or giggle.

A superbly simple rhyming story about wiggling through your day. I wanted to wiggle with the pictures on each page. I thoroughly enjoyed how Scott Menchin, the artist, used a real rubber ducky in a fake drawn bathtub and a cartoon dog with a real pancake on his head. The mismatched pictures were basic, colorful and fun to look at. The story itself is still in the style of the author's other books, Click, Clack, Moo, but doesn't make you feel as if you have read a different version of it already. Fresh ideas and crisp clean pages will have this book screaming to be read every day. Also recommended to use for teachers of kindergarten or first grade to start off the day with a good wiggle. Wiggling and movement before sitting down all day in class can provide some much needed stress relief...even for kids!

you MUST get this book--it is terrific! the rhyme is very catchy, the pictures are colorful and fun and i dare a toddler to not like it. my son (19 months old) requests this book several times a day--he can't get enough of it. the story is just short enough to keep a toddler's attention while being long enough to tell a tale. HIGHLY recommended!!!

This is such a fun book. Fans of Doreen Cronin work get a special treat with Scott Menchin's illustrations. I absolutely love the pictures in this book! Menchin combines real pictures with illustrations and creative shadowing (not sure if that is a real word!) My 2-year-old has to take it to bed with her, she loves it so much. I recommend it to anyone with toddlers. In fact, it's my new birthday gift.

My children ages 4 and 2 absolutely love this book. They enjoy the zany characters and light-hearted rhymes. It is a fun way to get them introduced to rhymes for pre-reading skills in a child friendly manner. Definately a winner for a gift or for your own little one.

If you want to put a smile on your little ones face then this is the book to get. How many different ways can you wiggle? Be careful though 'cos if you wiggle with your breakfast pancake it might end up on your head. This puppy dog will take you on all sorts of adventures: wiggling with gorillas, down into the ocean depths, visiting a crocodile and even up to the moon.

Font is large, illustrations are bold and bright. Lovely book.

My daughter got this from a book subscription her grandfather gave her and it's one of our favorite bedtime stories (especially for those nights when you want something a little shorter!). Like another reviewer, we usually wiggle to each page. The illustrations are nice - a mix of real photos and sketched elements - nothing fancy but cute and not ugly like a lot of children's books can be.

It's got a nice rhythm - I can see what some reviewers mean about it being awkard but it really isn't - it's not matchy rhymes like a poem but more like a conversation.
