Watch me hop!
With incredibly crisp photographs, these 60-frame lenticulars bring images to life. Watch a bunny or a grasshopper hop, and an elephant swing its trunk . These illustrations literally leap off the page!
A new gimmick to attract kidsthis book, according to the back cover copy, uses "incredible lenticular technology!" I am afraid that is a bit of a stretch, as is the image of a kangaroo jumping off the page. Yes, the fuzzy images do demonstrate motion, but that motion stays right on the page. Kids can make a bunny, grasshopper, kangaroo, frog and chicken hop. Other creatures like the fish, elephant and pig swish, sway and wiggle. There are a few facts in the text and the brightly colored pages offer an opportunity to learn about colors and some of the other things seen in each of the scenes. A bit of fun that may keep little ones engaged through the "8 amazing moving pictures!" Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
