Wiggly, giggly preschoolers will love the action in this picture book with its catchy sequence of movements and directions -- hop up, bend down, spin round, jump over -- that are endlessly fun! A young boy and his energetic puppy take a walk in their neighborhood, where they encounter and interact with lots of friends along the way!

A hop is up.
A bend is down.
A spin is round
and round
and round.
A jump is over,
from here to there.
A leap repeats
when there's a pair.

Dempsey's poetic and playful text is brought to life by Richmond's rich, kid-friendly illustrations. It all comes together for an inspired story that will have everyone on their feet!
