KIRKUS REVIEW

Toddlerobics (32 pp.; $15.99; Aug.; 0-7636-0803-3): For story hours when children just won’t sit still, Newcome harnesses that natural inclination to wiggle into a movement class and encourages toddlers to imitate animals. Crabs scuttle, horses gallop, penguins waddle, and worms wiggle. With each movement, she includes little drawings of both the animal itself, and the movement as interpreted by children. Her pudgy toddlers perform as they exercise, turning towels into jellyfish capes and pillows into butterfly wings; this book is as much a proponent for pretending as it is for exercise. (Picture book. 3-5)
