Texts and Tunes: Gallop!

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.

My almost 2 yr old destroyed the book too. He can sit with a book and carefully turn the pages but this one, I guess, was just too tempting AND easy to tear apart.

I got this book and my 2 year old destroyed it. It has perforated edges near the spine so its easy to tear the layer of the pages out. Its a book to keep on the top shelf and read only under mommy's supervision. It was great while it lasted. She loved moving the pages back and forth, watching it move, but she was more curious as to how it worked.

Yep, masonsmama. It's called "Swing" and I saw it at Costco yesterday (for a good price). It's about baseball, it seems. I love Gallop! My son is a bit young still to appreciate it, but it's very cool. I snatched it up at Costco awhile ago.
