Amazon.com Review

Folks will do almost anything if they're happy (and they know it)--from flapping their wings to touching their toes. At least they will in David A. Carter's pop-up version of the popular play song. Preschoolers will join in with glee, singing, "If you're happy and you know it...," while they help the playful animal characters clap their hands, wag their tails, and wink their eyes. Children pull simple tabs to animate the brightly hued cut-paper cat, dog, skunk, chicken, owl, and mouse. On the last page, all six animals pop up to "shout hooray" in a dramatic display of Carter's paper engineering flair. Musical notation for the song appears on the back cover.

Carter has created many well-loved interactive picture books, including another pop-up nursery song, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, as well as Alpha Bugs: A Pop-Up Alphabet and Easter Bugs: A Springtime Pop-Up. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

Two familiar songs spring to life thanks to David A. Carter's movable illustrations. Youngsters can open a farmyard fence as a pig jumps out with its sound, "oink oink," showing through a die-cut opening in Old MacDonald Had a Farm. With the pull of a tab, the cat claps and rooster flaps in If You're Happy and You Know It. The final spreads in both books pop up, with all the animals spelling "E-I-E-I-O!" in one and all the animals shouting "HOORAY!" in the other. Music and lyrics appear on the back covers. (Aug.)

I'm a speech pathologist and work mostly with the 1-3 year old age group, and they ADORE this book. I've worn out one version, and am getting a second one. Several autistic and severely language delayed children have spoken their first words with this book! It takes a beating, but is well worth it.

My daughter, almost 2, loves this book and so does everybody else that reads it to her. The whole book is "if you're happy and you know it..." and it has "flap your wings", "pat your head", "touch your toes", "shout horray", "wink you eyes", etc. The book is interactive and allows her to move the parts in the book and also she can do all the activities herself too. Its just way too cute to watch her "flap her wings". A definite favorite in our house!

I saw this book during a library storytime and just had to get it. I thought it was the most creative concept. Both my children (6 months and 2 1/2 years) can't get enough of this book. It's thoroughly entertaining. I sing the song and my daughter pulls and pushes all the arrows to move the different parts. She finds it exciting everytime. I would highly recommend it.

This is always a favorite in my preschool classes, and now my granddaughter (almost 3) loves it too! Young kids can't look at pop-up books by themselves without ruining them, but this is a fun song for parents/grandparents to enjoy with kids. It's fun to see what different animals do when they are happy.

I take my 2 year-old to a reading time at the library where they read this book every week. It is so much fun and all of the kids really love it. My son tries to take it home with him every week and will sing "If You're Happy and You Know It" to anyone who will listen.

Purchased this pop-up book after seeing it being read at library storytime. Kids were having fun as they wagged their "tail" and flapped their "wings".

Very cute and colorful illustrations. My son's favorite is the owl winking its eye. And my son is sooo cute and adorable as he tries to wink his eye. Entertaining read for both me and my son. Highly recommend this book.

I bought mine new, but after a few months, it's now taped and worn in several places, after reading and tab pulling for the nth time. This is a pop-up book. Try to find one that's new or one that you can examine physically before buying, if you're picky.
