Book Review: My First Animal Moves

My First Animal Moves by Darryl Edwards. This book will get kids and parents moving!

Genre: Children’s Books/ Sports/ Illustrated Books
Publication Date: September 20th, 2021
Publisher: Explorer Publishing

This adorable children’s book is perfect for this digital age where children spend more time indoors in front of a screen instead of outside playing. Despite the efforts of adults some children don’t really know what to do to have fun outside. Edwards has found a delightful way to show children how to be active while having fun. Each of the moves is related to an animal that is pictured, reducing confusion if a child does not know what a certain animal might be.

I would give this book three out of five stars. Not only does it give children some great ideas to have fun and be active, it includes the parents, almost asking children to teach their parents how to do each animal move. Although the illustrations are cheerful and bright I don’t think they convey how much fun the young boy is having moving like an animal. I think the boy could be shown having more fun which would be a better buy-in for kids. Overall, it is a great idea and children can try the moves by using picture cues even if they don’t know what the animal is.
