Summary

Clickity! Clickity! Long green feet!
Who is dancing that clickity beat?

Lizard is dancing on clickity feet.
Clickity! Clickity! Happy feet!

Introducing a get-up-and-dance toddler book-so catchy and rhythmic, you'll almost want to sing it.

Lindsey Craig's rollicking text features funny sound words (Tippity! Creepity! Stompity! Thumpity!), dancing animals, a singsong beat, and a guessing element just easy enough for preschoolers to anticipate. Marc Brown's artwork is bright, textured, and joyful, a collage of simple shapes for kids to find and name.

So grab a partner and tap your feet to this read-aloud picture-book treat.

Horn Book Review

Tippity! Tippity! / Little black feet! / Who is dancing / that tippity beat?" An energetic collage illustration gives kiddos a big hint: teeny-tiny footprints trail behind a red backside, speckled with black polka dots. With a page turn, readers learn the answer: ladybugs. The pattern then repeats, with lively introductions to other animals' "stompity," "slappity," or "creepity" feet. A perfect book to get toddlers up and dancing. (c) Copyright 2010.
