Praise For Hop, Hop, Jump!

"[A] lively, anti–couch potato book set at a summer camp, a companion to Chew, Chew, Gulp! Foot-stomping fun that’s tailor-made for exuberant preschool read-aloud."--Publishers Weekly

"Action-loving friends are seen right side up or upside down as they demonstrate more than 15 moves in rhythmic succession. With bright acrylic colors, broad cartoon smiles, and eyes alit, the multicultural campers demonstrate each activity or sport with action verbs in bold type and highlighting the body parts involved in hiking, swimming, tumbling, and dancing. The book creates a listing and a series of active images for younger readers to discover their body by moving along with friends."--School Library Journal
