Can you LEAP like a tiger? Do an elephant STOMP? SPRINT like a leopard on a jungle romp? Simms Taback’s vibrant illustrations and Harriet Ziefert’s rhythmic text will have young readers prancing and dancing, waddling and wiggling, swaying and swooping with delight. Swing! features animals on a jaunty walk to the zoo, and Wiggle!s animals are ready for a dip in the sea. These sturdy board books with lively lenticular covers will get kids on their feet and keep them moving.
