Reviewed by Hilary Williamson
n this delightful picture book, a boy and a girl (who appear to be siblings) go through the motions of acting out different animals in turn - a bear, a monkey, a turtle, a snake, a spider, a dog ... and finally a person.
or example, the kids show us how to be a monkey - '
Swing from a tree. / Eat with your toes. / Copy someone. / Be curious.
' The mimes for each animal end with a positive attribute, and at the end, all of those traits are included in '
How to be a PERSON
'. That one ends appropriately with '
ow to Be
is a sweet picture book that combines good values with ideas for miming play, that kids can extend beyond the animals shown here.
