If You're Hoppy review

If You're Hoppy

Are you feeling hoppy?
Hop hop hop.
Like a rabbit?
Or a kangaroo?
Or a frog?

If the answer is yes,
this book will make you happy.
If the answer is no,
this book will make you hoppy
and happy!

Here is a funny and delightful book written with the children's tune "If You're Happy and You Know It" in mind. The words are definitely different and it may help to review the story first before reading it aloud to a larger group for it to become a smoother read. Children will pick up on the catchy sing-song tune and will enjoy reading along with the bolded choice animal names (expect some shouting).  The pages have large and colorful illustrations with jumbo size rhyming words. Preschool children would enjoy this and I think it would be a "just right book" for ages 3-6.~
