Woogie Your Boogie! The Boogie Monster by Josie Bissett
I HAVE COME FROM PLANET BOOGIE TODAY.Who could resist that invitation! With the current interest in getting young kids moving, Josie Bissett, author of the arrestable hit, Tickle Monster, is back with a new book to gets tots' toes tapping, feet hopping, and body bouncing to the the beat, whatever your favorite beat IS! Little kids are cool to calisthenics and too young to pump iron, but they are all born to move, and Boogie Monster knows how to make the most of that urge.
MY MISSION WITH YOU
TO DANCE AND PLAY.
I'VE HEARD YOU'RE A BOOGIE MONSTER LIKE ME.
YOU'VE GOT YOUR OWN MOVES??...
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE!
Bissett's text takes the kids through a variety of movement, simulating floating, fluffy clouds or imagining ants in the pants, with free-form dance the rule of the day. As this boogie man points out, there are plenty of ways to put those muscles into motion:
THE MORE THAN YOU USE THEM,In her latest, Boogie Monster (Compendium, 2011), Bissett's rhyming text and Karan Atteberry's jolly illustrations can keep kids bouncing and boogying to any beat, and it's a chance for parents of preschoolers to show off their best moves as well. Fun for one or for a class, it's a good excuse to get those bodies in motion for a needed boogie break.
THE STRONGER THEY'LL BE.
Available also is the Boogie Monster Dance Kit, with the book, a CD of kid-friendly dance music by Recess Monkey, and pull-on Boogie Monster leggings (fit most kids) to dress the part for a monster dance party. So get ready to shake your boogie-woogie!
