The Lovereading4Kids comment

A follow up to the picture-book phenomenon that is Doing the Animal Bop - a second riotous animal romp that will have toddlers stamping their feet and joining in with gusto. Sound effects for the energetic antics of the animals, along with sparkling jazzy rhythms, provide a perfect backing-track to the narration of The Animal Bop Won't Stop on the accompanying audio CD. The rhythmic rhyming text encourages all sorts of actions and noises that are lots of fun to do - prowling and growling, wiggling and sashaying, trotting and strutting. And every move is gloriously illustrated by Lindsey Gardiner with a kaleidoscope of pattern and collage.

Praise for Doing the Animal Bop: 'I'm not sure who enjoys this book more-me or my nine month old son! The illustrations are fun, and rhymes for each animal are simple, amusing and incredibly rhythmic and will get you willingly joining in the animal bop .

About the Author

Jan Ormerod

Jan Ormerod (1946 - 2013) grew up in the fifties, in a series of small towns in Western Australia, with her three older sisters. As a child she drew constantly and compulsively, inspired by beautifully drawn schoolgirl annuals from England and secretly acquired American comics that were forbidden by her parents.

Her books have largely been a celebration and savouring of the positive experience of parenthood she truly had not anticipated–the fun, the warmth, and the love. Jan was acutely aware that picture books are almost always shared by the child and a caring adult.

She published more than 50 picture books in her lifetime, won many honours and awards, and her work is published in more than 20 countries.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
