Editorial Reviews:

"Not all books should be read sitting down... beautifully illustrated. Parents and teachers will appreciate this book for its ability to teach their children to be 'creatively fit.' Pilgrim wanted to awaken the imaginations of young children, which she does very well as she suggests that they 'soar like an eagle' or 'swing... like a monkey.' And those same children will continue to use their imagination as they request that this book be read to them again and again."
—Emily Castilla, Reading Matters Blog (Great Reading for Your Children)

"All the world's a stage and our youngest children can be players right in their own homes through the imagination and experienced hand of Melissa Pilgrim... Clearly she loves to work with children both to get their bodies moving and to get their imaginations charged. The book guides you from one animal to the next and the directions for how to move are simple and well-illustrated. The author offers 6 lesson plans for preschoolers and for kindergartners. This would be a favorite for the classroom."
—Barb Langridge, A Book and a Blog
