Most tots like to move around as much as they love to sit down with mommy for a good book. Gallop!: A Scanimation Picture Book ($11) unites both in a fun book for everyone to enjoy.
Unlike any text I've seen, Gallop! brings movement to the story with each turn of the page. Your child will want to read it again and again to see the horse gallop, the turtle swim, the dog run, as well as watch other animals magically move around. Simple questions like, "Can you gallop like a horse?" will make your lil one eager to mimic the movement and keep her excited for the pages that follow. Younger children will get a kick out of the book, but it's the older children who will be amazed at how the images float across the page. I am still in awe when I read the tale to my tots.
