How do animals MOVE? What verbs do we use to describe the way they move? A penguin WALKS, and then it DIVES. A frog DIVES and then it LEAPS. A snake SLITHERS and then it HIDES. A butterfly HIDES, and then it FLUTTERS. And the movement goes on in the animal world!

MOVE! is a simple picture book showing related movements between some popular wild animals and some that are less well known. The text is sparce, the pattern simple, and the learning potential is profound! Take the stepstones from MOVE! to the mastery learning of verbs!

MOVE! is included in our Kids Wings Stepstone Stories Collection of 50 literature guides for award-winning picture books! Now on sale while the limited quantity lasts.
