Here's What People Are Saying About Animal Motions:
Bigger Print Easy to Read!
"The large size of this book makes the illustrations come to life. I love bright colorful pictures. The bigger print makes it easy to read to my grandchild."
Great Message, Excellent Illustrations!
"The illustrations in the book are awesome! My daughter who is three and hasn't learned to read yet loooooooves to create her own stories just by looking at the pictures. It gets her imagination moving!"
This is a Fun Children's Book! Gives Kids a More Exciting Way to Stretch and Move...
"The illustrations are bright, colorful, and captivating. They really bring the story to life. I love the concept of this book. I love that it can get kids moving and they don't even realize it! They just think they're mimicking the animals. My six-year-old laughed and loved this book. I also love that the website has lesson plans, and that there is an app that goes along with the story. I would definitely recommend this book for families with toddlers to first graders. It would also be great in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade classes, along with younger dance and gymnastics classes."
Perfect Teaching Tool for Working with Young Children!
"What a wonderful story Melissa Pilgrim has written for young readers (and those who are young at heart). The vibrant, colorful illustrations and creative movements encourage children to engage their bodies as well as their imaginations as they pretend to be different animals. What a fun way to introduce exercise as a part of every day. As a former daycare provider I would have loved to have this book in my library to share with my kids. We bought extra copies for my daughter—who is working toward becoming an autism specialist— to have as part of her own repertoire and another to donate to the local preschool she attended as a young child and as a teenaged worker. Kudos to Melissa and Ira for one of the best children's books to come onto the market today!"
—Brigette B., Former Daycare Owner

Favorite for the Classroom!
"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 illustrations lend themselves to caricature which lights each page with a touch of humor and fun along with the bright colors and energy. The author offers lesson plans for preschoolers and for kindergarteners. This would be a favorite for the classroom."
