Day Seven: Waddle!

Welcome to Day Seven in The 24 Days of Books! Today we're going to highlight a book for younger readers. Two years ago one of the hottest books for kids was a book called Gallop!, by Rufus Butler Seder, which incorporated a new technology called "scanimation" to show animals in movement. It was HOT! The following year he followed up with a book called Swing!, which showed athletes in motion. For 2009 he brings back animals with Waddle! In this adorable blue book, the penguin waddles, the frog hops, the pig prances, the elephant stomps, the snake slithers (ok, I couldn't really look at this page -- I have a thing about snakes), the hummingbird flaps, the bear scampers, and the dolphin leaps. But I'm not going to tell you what the alligator does; you'll have to check that out for yourself! Kids love these books, and frankly lots of adults do too! They're way fun.
