Publisher: Putnam

 An extended play-rhyme that invites readers or listeners to clap, jump, spin, wriggle, pat, rub, and stretch in a variety of ways. Cauley's humans and clothed animals cavort happily across the pages; the layout is spacious and the action easy to follow, with each character bursting with childlike energy. Taken cover to cover, this is something of a workout (less limber programmers take heed!); but, fortunately, it lends itself to excerpting and rearrangement. Infectiously joyful.
