This book had a different beat to it, and I liked the illustrations. ( )

Warning: This is NOT a story for bedtime! It will induce jumping, dancing, wiggling, but not sleep. It’s also one you might want to practice a couple of times before reading it for an audience. Each child in the book has their own particular way of wokka-wokka-ing. It has a great, but subtle message: “Nobody wokkas in the same wokka way.” Cecil’s illustrations are full of movement and color, and Bluemle’s rhythmic rap-like verse will make everyone want to wokka-wokka.

I saw How Do You Wokka Wokka? in the Picnic Basket. Deborah consistently has some good books and its the title that grabbed me for this one.

A fun, rhyming look at how different children in the neighborhood "wokka-wokka."

Some of the rhymes flow effortlessly,

"How do you wokka-wokka?
I wokka-wokka like a clock go ticka-tocka-
pitta-patta
time-no-matta
picka-pocka-ticka-tocka,'

while others feel a bit forced.

The font, layout and illustrations (I can't determine the medium) are perfect for depicting a funky, urban, multicultural neighborhood. The positive, underlying theme of the book is individuality within community.

Bottom line - a good choice for reading aloud, but practice first!
