This book is simple, rhythmic and fun and I'd use it with toddlers. It's marketed as a "super sturdy picture book" and I agree, the pages are a little thicker than usual.

This is a really cute book for a lively storytime for little ones. I encouraged the mums and babes to move along to the words and they went for it! There is lots of wiggling and twisting, and some repeated phrases too, "Shake it, shake it, shake it baby!" is such fun. It has extra sturdy pages, and would be a good focus book for slightly older ones, but needs to be in board book format to be a true focus book contender.

This book has "super sturdy" pages because they are thicker than other pages. It is easy to read with colorful pictures. In addition, this is a book with lots of action words. I would recommend this book to pre-kindergarten students.

Recommends it for: Ages 2+ and Baby/Toddler Storytime
This book is simple, rhythmic and fun. The pages are a little thicker than usual which makes this a good gift for toddlers as well.
This is a book to read while standing up and with some music so you can dance together.
