KIRKUS REVIEW

A joyously unrestrained, candy-colored salute to exercise, wherein Carlson’s company of cockeyed animals encourage young readers to forsake whatever screen has them in its thrall, to go outside and shake that thing. It doesn’t matter if you are short, tall, skinny or round—or, for that matter, happen to be a frog, or pig, or rabbit or dog—writes Carlson in this gentle challenge to get off your duff. As the animals gyrate about the page, they sing the praises of staying fit, keeping trim despite those rare encounters with junk food, learning about sportsmanship, making new pals at the playground and even learning to relax as you enjoy a brisk walk. Carlson has posed herself a mighty challenge, but her effort has enough vim to get the job done, and is pegged at those young enough to be saved. (Picture book. 3-6)
