Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 2. In this lively collaboration by spouses Jenkins and Page, a host of animal movements are sure to leave children wanting to imitate the animals' swinging, waddling, and jumping actions. Jenkins' signature paper collages, boldly set against white backgrounds, illustrate each of two actions per animal; these are preceded and followed by parallel movements performed by different animals. A jacana a waterbird walks on floating lily pads . . . reads a right-hand page. The page turn completes the sentence: then dives to catch a fish. The blue whale pictured alongside dives, too, but the next page reveals that it also swims, just like the adjacent armadillo. The running text arcs around the images, often mimicking the featured movement, which also appears in large, boldface type on each spread. The text ends with an invitation--Move! --accompanied by a picture of bare human feet. Further information about each animal concludes, indicating sizes for readers who may find the pictures' inaccurate scale confusing. Use this as part of a storytime-with-movement, perhaps alongside Karen Pandell's Animal Action ABC (1996). --GraceAnne DeCandido Copyright 2006 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This spring, readers will find all sorts of companions to favorite books. With their usual spare text and dramatic mixed-media collage pairings, Steve Jenkins and Robin Page explore how various animals Move! PW wrote in a starred review of the duo's, I See a Kookaburra!, "Jenkins masterfully manipulates texture and space, playing up the unique palette and architecture of each habitat." Each spread fluidly segues to the next, as young readers watch a monkey "swing" into action on the first spread, then, on the succeeding spread, it perambulates opposite a striking-looking jacana that "walks on floating lily pads." The jacana's dive on the next spread introduces a blue whale, etc. Words describing movement appear in large black type. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
