I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.
“movement is medicine”
My First Animal Moves is a delightful introduction of exercise for small children. The book can be used for an individual one on one experience or perfect as a group class activity.
Darryl Edwards is a Movement Coach and has created this charming picture book to encourage children to get up and move more with the help of a few animal friends.
I loved the introduction of the animals and learning about their individual movements. I can imagine children relishing the idea of roaming around like a bear or a frog. As a parent or teacher you could expand the activity and find out more details about each animal or you could find other animal moves to impersonate.
The illustrations are bright, colourful and charming.
A fun, entertaining, activity picture book.
