Ages birth-3

“Lift your legs up and down. / Twirl your hips round and round. / Wiggle, waggle to the sound. / And move to the beat.” Irresistible rhythm and catchy language will have babies and toddlers bouncing to this delightful read-aloud. The story shown in the illustrations follows children gathering with cake, gifts, and balloons for a birthday celebration. A recurring chorus of “Shake, shake, shake it, baby! / Come and dance with me!” invites even the youngest listener to join in on the fun. Heavy-weight pages will hold up to vigorous repeat readings. (Ages birth -3) Honor Book, 2009 Charlotte Zolotow Award (MVL)  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
