Summary

Summary

"If read with the right amount of verve (and it's hard not to), this book should spice up storytimes."

- Kirkus Reviews

This jacketed hardcover picture book encourages body movement. Readers will be up and out of their chairs as they follow--and stomp--along with the diverse group of children and adults featured in this rowdy read. From stomping really fast to stomping while you wiggle all your toes, this interactive title promises to be an engaging and fun read--perfect for group story times!

Stomp is the newest title from Uncle Ian Aurora and a follow up to the award-winning read-aloud, Clap.


Author Notes

In the cold mountains of the north lives a man of unlimited joy and mischief. Known for his exceptionally loud, yet skillful storytelling, we were beyond thrilled when he came to us with Clap . Finally, we had an opportunity to share a classic Uncle Ian Aurora story with the world.

Kirkus Review

This bright and lively book requires readers to move, make noise, and enjoy.From the very first page this book invites readers to get up and join inliterally: "Everybody up! It's time to get moving!" A tan-skinned child with flowing brown hair instructs readers to stomp and clap along with a diverse group of friends in various scenarios and settings. Whether it's a hillside, a beach, a grassy park, a snowy wood, a preschool classroom, or the living room couch, it's always the perfect place to stomp and clap, wiggle and giggle with a friend. The text is rhythmic and silly: "Stomp just a LITTLE as you wiggle all your toes. / Stomp SIX times while you're tapping on your nose." Imagination is encouraged ("Stomp like you're SITTING on a horse you like to ride"), as is taking a pause ("Stop for a second, stretch your body really wide"). Though the kids are taking the lead, the occasional benevolent adult also appears, drawn from a cast that's diverse racially as well as gender- and agewise. There is little logic to the sequence, but that's hardly the point: The illustrations blend vibrant colors and textures to create a vibe that matches the message.If read with the right amount of verve (and it's hard not to), this book should spice up storytimes.
