Did you ever stop and notice just how many books encourage your child to move? From the very first book that enters their little hands, children can get active and involved during reading time. The one year old that has just learned to clap? Try “Clap Your Hands” by Lorinda Bryan Cavley. Your precious three year old that is learning all his body parts? Try “From Head to Toe” by Eric Carle.

Five Little Ducks – Raffi
Growing Vegetable Soup – Lois Ehlert
