Book of the Week-Clap Your Hands

This weeks book is Clap Your Hands by Lorinda Bryan Cauley. It is one of my favorites for every age group! Once you read this, you'll never stop! Because your child will ask you for it over and over and over and over again. This is a book you don't just read, you move to it...right along with all the other characters in the book. Each character is beautifully drawn on a white background. It's excellent! It really adds to the book watching these characters move around the pages. Each character (like each child) has their own interpretation of the movement suggested on the page. It's great! So, stand up and read this book! You'll have a blast!
This is a great book to have secretly stashed in your circle time box to get the wiggles out when they start getting restless. If children are starting to get rambunctious during free choice, just sit on the floor and start reading; they will come over! Every classroom (not just every center) should have this book. Introduce the young children to different movements, get the wiggles out of older children, and just have fun!
Here's a picture of the author (since it's not included in the book):
