Waiting for minimum critic reviews


How many different ways of walking can you name? Join a parade of animals on their way to the zoo to find out! Can you prance like a lion? Dance like a gazelle? Can you saunter like a giraffe? Kangaroo jump? March like a camel with a bumpity hump? Simms Taback's big, bright, and bold illustrations make following these wild and wonderful creatures more fun than a barrel of monkeys!
