This is so flippin' cute! The rhymes have such a flow to them and the overall feel is fun and joyful.

A boy wakes up, goes to the window and greets the day with arms thrown up in the air. A kitty next door watches and follows the boy downstairs. It's the kind of day in which you "just gotta wokka" and greet everyone you pass. Evidently, "nobody wokkas in the same wokka way;" one girl "wokka-wokka like flamingos in a flocka" and another boy like a "mariachi with maracas."

A fun and vibrant rhyming story, "How Do You Wokka-Wokka?" will have preschoolers dancing and walking crazily around the room. A surefire way to elicit a few giggles and teach movement, body parts and sound recognition at the same time.
