The book “If You're Happy and You Know It” was written by Annie Kubler. This book is appropriate for ages 2 to 4 in early childhood classrooms. I like this book because it provides beautiful pictures and songs on each page. This book can help children to develop their motor skills, languages skill as well as their brain and muscle development. The teacher can also teach songs through this book. There are many songs relate to this book title on YouTube. Children have an opportunity to sing with g ...more

Although this is a book technically, it’s really the well-known song in book form, complete with the sheet music printed on the back cover of the book. The structure of the book, repeating the phrase that is the title before each page that displays a short sentence like “Clap your hands / Aplaude” and “Hide away / Escondete” makes for plenty of repetition (8 times): almost the number 12 that researchers suggest children need to hear a word before they learn it. This song obviously also encourage ...more

I'm always looking for a good board book. This one caught my interest because it's Harry's favorite song (actually, in our house it's "If You're Harry and You Know It"). I like this one because it shows all different kinds of babies doing all kinds of fun things - and finishing up by hugging their friends!
ages 1-5. This board book gives alternate actions for the "If you're happy and you know it" song. Each page shows children doing the actions and makes it easy for children to follow along. Encourages singing, playing, and phonological awareness.

This book is just so much fun!

Little ones are encouraged to clap their hands, hide away, kick their legs, etc.

Lots of fun for parents and little ones to have together!

Great illustrations bring this rhyme to life!

This is a darling little book with darling illustrations I can't help but love (just look at those cute babies!) Older babies will surely love attempting to follow the actions.

Chloe enjoys acting this one out. Quite fun.

The song is there, but this is meant for babies, not little children in a class. The kids enjoyed the book anyway!

I really liked this book for babies. You can sing with the words if you want and do motions with the baby. This is a great interactive book even for younger infants.

Cute ideas, but too difficult to do with a baby on your lap and probably too baby-ish for older kids.

this is a great hardbook to be active with; you can put motions and sing along with it, which kiddos love! The illustrations are well done as well.

Fun things to do on each page to go with the song! Song is on the back... obviously easier to read and sing if you're already familiar with the song. GREAT SONG

A bigger-than-average board book that encourages wiggling, shaking, and moving all around to show how happy you are. A baby storytime read.

This board book was read for story time at play group today. I like the original lyrics better, but the kids had fun playing along.

Recommends it for: babies and their caregivers
This book was perfect for the babies at lap time and the caregivers/parents who did the simple activities with them. 10/15/13

Used again, very simple and wonderful for Lap Time.

Not as good as others in this series. Actions are not the traditional ones and a little difficult to do with a baby on your lap. Possibly better for a nursery school or kindergarten environment.
