I love this book! This book asks questions such as who hops, swims, slithers and flies. Each question it'll have an animal in it that doesn't hop or fly and it'll explain why it was silly to think that a cow can hop. It'll then correct it and say what that animal actually does.

This bright and color-filled book engages children by allowing them to learn about how certain animals and creatures do and do not get around. From the cow who doesn't hop to the Rhino who doesn't fly, children can read along about how certain animals move, and when they get to an animal that doesn't get around in a certain way, the children yell out "No they don't!"

I really enjoyed how brightly colorful this book was; a white spec was never found in this book. I like how the book asked different questions about which animals got around a certain way. For instance, on one colorful page, there is a little boy pointing to a large sign that says, "Who flies?" This gets children thinking about what animals and creatures fly. It then shows a little bird flying, a bat flying, a fly fling, and a rhino flying. Although, Rhino's don't fly, so I think it's funny how the next page illustrates the rhino on its head with a Band-Aid on. This is when the students yell "No They Don't!" I like how the book illustrates a variety of movements, such as hopping, flying, slithering, swimming etc. The central message of this book is to illustrate to children how animals move around. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 015216412X, Paperback)

Who hops? Does a cow hop? A giraffe? And if not, what do they do instead? These simple questions are answered in Katie Davis's fanciful Who Hops? Exploding with color, this engaging read-aloud book takes a fun-filled look at the world of animal movement. Introducing animals that really do hop or fly or swim, Davis ends the sequence with one that certainly doesn't. Birds fly. Bats fly. Flies fly. Rhinos fly. NO THEY DON'T! (At that point, a bedraggled purple rhino, complete with tiny pink wings strapped to his huge body, says, "Great. NOW you tell me.") The cartoonish animals will delight preschoolers, and the bold, black type encourages even the youngest children to attempt reading. Moving quickly through various modes of transportation, Who Hops? finishes with the question, "Who hops and flies and slithers and swims and crawls?" "Why, you do, of course!" Kids are sure to giddily shout out answers, and they may learn a few things about the flying, leaping animal kingdom through their giggles. (Ages 2 to 6) --Aimee Damman
