KIRKUS REVIEW

What better way to herald the end of school and the start of summer than by ditching shoes and socks and donning flip-flops? Everyone’s doing the “flip flop bop,” from kids and their parents, to grandma and grandpa. They’re flip-flopping all over town—the candy store, the soda shop, the pet store and the beach. They even continue in the rain and the mud. But when they are homeward bound, they must exchange the flip-flops for a bath, bunny slippers and the “sleepy time bop.” Exuberant rhyming text and onomatopoeia make this a fun-filled read-aloud, but practice first—it gets a little silly: “Shmippy. Shmoppy. Gazippy. Gazoppy. Kazoobaloobadippy. Kazoobaloobadoppy.” Bright colors, silly details and huge grins on all the characters (including animals) will challenge even the straightest of faces not to crack a smile. Fun for fans of flip-flops and summer. (Picture book. 3-7)
