This interactive children’s book will have your child moving in a range of patterns. This helps build imaginative play, develops coordination skills and the order of the movements has been specifically designed to help with self-regulation. Children finish their active storytelling by resting in a starfish pose.
The reader can extend the length of time children spend in each animal movement. Movements can be skipped if a child is becoming overexcited or extended if a movement is found to be calming for the child. The rest pose can be extended and become a calming meditative pose for the child.
Teachers can use the digital version of this book to your advantage by printing the story back to back with the image of the animal page. So you can hold up the picture of the animal for the children to see while you’re reading the story.
This beautifully illustrated children’s book is designed to engage your child in movements that have been carefully selected for children to help regulate their sensory system, reduce stress, build up their strength and coordination. Read this book with your child and get active with them.
Fun, imaginative and interactive, this story featuring Australian Native Animals is suitable for children from three years of age.

“What a delightful little storybook that highlights our unique Australian animals. By using the variety of animal movements the book provides a series of therapeutic activities that can be used in a classroom setting or one on one with your child. Enjoy the fun and laughter as you jump, walk and hop your way through this book.” – Noemi Northridge Early Childhood Educator.
