Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K—In this picture book, children are asked to guess who's dancing across a spread by looking at the clues in the artwork and listening to the rhymes. A dancing bear makes a "Thumpity! Thumpity!" noise with its feet, while the steps of ladybugs sound more like, "Tippity! Tippity!" Appearing alongside a row of small footprints is: "Creepity! Creepity!/Lots of purple feet!/Who is dancing/that creepity beat?" A turn of the page reveals an illustration of a smiling caterpillar and the answer: "Caterpillar's dancing/on creepity feet./Creepity! Creepity!/Happy feet!" Brown uses hand-painted paper collage and primary shapes to create all of the happy dancers. A surprise pairing of partners ends this cheerful story and acts as a motivator to get children moving. Pair this title with Karma Wilson's Hilda Must Be Dancing (S & S, 2004) for storytimes full of movement and sounds.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada

"Tippity! Tippity! / Little black feet! / Who is dancing / that tippity beat?" An energetic collage illustration gives kiddos a big hint: teeny-tiny footprints trail behind a red backside, speckled with black polka dots. With a page turn, readers learn the answer: ladybugs. The pattern then repeats, with lively introductions to other animals' "stompity," "slappity," or "creepity" feet. A perfect book to get toddlers up and dancing.

STARRED REVIEW*--Publishers Weekly
DANCING FEET!

 
Consistently in step with newcomer Craig's toe-tapping narrative, Brown's cut-paper collages...introduce a cheerful menagerie of animals composed of basic shapes cut from hand-painted papers in an array of colors, textures, and patterns that recall everything from corrugated cardboard to exotic grasses. Celebrating movement and sound, the guessing-game story hints at the identity of each creature, initially seen retreating from the page, leaving footprints behind.

By Deb HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 17, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This rhythmical, stepping out, herd of happy little feet will get your little ones moving. If you have an expressive voice and a passel of little ones to entertain, you can almost count on several happy little dancers. The rhyming sequence is very singsong and can easily be adapted to music. The artwork is very bright and exudes a happy aura. Just picture four colorful ducks . . .

Slappity! Slappity!
Webbed orange feet!
Who is dancing
that slappity beat?

Ducks are dancing
on slappity feet.
Slappity! Slappity!
Happy feet!

Your little one will tippity, stompity, slappity, creepity, thumpity, and crickity with an irresistible cast of critter creatures. There are ladybugs, an elephant, ducks, a caterpillar, a bear and a lizard. Lindsey Craig has teamed up with Marc Brown of "Arthur" fame, to bring everyone a perfect little cast of dancers. This would be a perfect book for circle or story time!

My two year old just loves this book. I bought it because he kept coming home from daycare talking about it. He'd memorized it before he got his own copy, but he still loves reading it. Very cute and an easy quick read.

This is such a charming book for ages 0-3. The sweet rhyming lyrical beat of this book makes it a perfect read aloud for little ones. My 3 year old boy adores standing up and acting out the stompity or slapity actions of this book. It is also great for introducing animals to little ones. My one year old daughter adores the pictures and makes her best animal sound at each page.
Our instinct is to get up and dance to this book. My kids love it and it is a perfect addition to your in home library. Already its one of those books I want to keep in my purse for entertainment emergencies. It has the words and the art to keep any kid entertained. Get this book

My granddaughter loves this book - the rhyming and rhythm of it help her to remember the words. Requires her to remember and match picture clues to the animal on the next page. She asks to have it read often.

I bought the book for a 10 month old, so really should have chosen the paperboard option. But the verses are really cute and the animals appropriate for a baby. Bought PeekABoo Kisses with this one and together they brought hours of fun during my visit.

My 3-year old looooooves this book, especially when we sign it with accents and sound effects. We borrowed it randomly at the library and she requested it so many times, I bought it for our collection.

My daughter loves this book and asks me to read it to her multiple times per day. It has a great rhythm to it and is fun to read. The illustrations are fabulous. I have given this book as a gift to many people who are having kids (or have kids) and have gotten great feedback from them about it as well.

My grandaughter (who is 2 years old) just loves this book!! I was visiting this past week, and every time I finished reading this delightful and cute book, she said "Again." Thank you for this wonderful children's book and I am going to look for more books from Lindsey Craig!
