I love how the books repeat and you learn some fun reading in them. These type of books have been a favorite at our house for some time. I picked this book because it is a current favorite of my youngest. Check out the gross motor that we did with the book.

  1. What a wonderful way to retell a story! I love how into it the girls got.

    • Cassie says:

      We did this for about 30 minutes. I did it with them after the first round through for pictures. It was a great workout for them and me!

  2. This is great! And with all of the the different versions of this book you could do a different workout every day. We’re definitely going to give this a try.
