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

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!
UPDATE: As our grandson nears a year it appears that he can see the pictures better and the wonderful language on the pages is so much fun. So my recommendation is to wait until about a year and then I think most children will enjoy the scanimation books.
