If You're Happy and You Know it by Anna McQuinn

In this multicultural version of the traditional song, children from cultures all over the world clap their hands, stomp their feet, pat their heads, and much more. The accompanying singalong CD continues the interactive fun! This title joins Barefoot's popular Singalong Songs series. Call-and-response text invites reader participation. Children from all over the world are joining in, and you will learn how to say hello in thirty-five different languages. This title features simple words from nine different languages for each action shown in the art. It is illustrated by Sophie Fatus, artist of the best-selling Barefoot Books yoga range, including My Daddy is a Pretzel (PB: 9781905236824), Yoga Pretzels (9781905236046) and Yoga Planet (9781846861819).
