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

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.

This is such a fun book. Every time you open a page the animals look like they are moving. I really like that they are in color too. I bought this for my toddler and she really enjoys this book. She asks to read it over and over again and hops around like the animals do in the book.

The storyline is TERRIBLE. So I don't read the words, I just let my son play with the pages to make the pictures move. There is so much potential with these books, but both of them have really lame, unreadable stories.

I have now bought at least 10 of these Scanimation books because their animated pictures are absolutely wonderful for children of all ages. It is a board book that is truly interactive. This particular one covers birds and I bought it for a shower present for someone who was expecting a baby boy. They will keep a toddler amused for hours and they cover many topics: animals, sports, comics and movies!

Each book has exceptional illustrations in a format that allows the viewer to see captioned moving pictures with the turn of a page!
And this one covers the adventures of birds. I bought this one for a first birthday present for twins but it has become the 7 year old's favorite book recently and adults have commented on what a great keepsake it is, so I guess anyone would find something great about it. I think Rufus Butler Seder is a genius!

My husband saw this book at a friend's house and decided my daughter just HAD to have it too. He loves reading it with her. We all like the pictures. If you like this book there are a few more just like it.
