Synopsis

Busy Bodies Play Like the Animals by David Aiken, Zora Aiken

Ages birth to 6 years. Encourage children to get outside for some fresh air and exercise with this fun, illustrated book introducing the various ways that animals move about. Children often mimic the actions of their own pets; Busy Bodies expands that tendency, inviting children to pretend to be animals and hop, run, or leap like rabbits, deer, or frogs. They will exert a lot of energy and get healthy playful exercise with thirteen different animal actions. But it is not just about exercising the body and the imagination; children will learn new words too, as each new animal introduces a new motion. Each activity is illustrated on a double-page spread, and a short rhyme provides just enough description to get the children started. The fun does not end with the last page. Rather, the book encourages children to explore more animal actions and invent endless and active games to play.
