Singily Skipping Along by Sheree Fitch and Deanne Fitzpatrick
A “body movement multi-sensory inventive language poem” intended for children ages 2 to 5, Singily Skipping Along is playful and imaginative, asking the reader to pretend to be a tree, a whale, a spider, a cloud, and to find the many delightful ways they can move their bodies. The text uses some predictable and cumulative patterns but also includes joyful surprise patterns—and a healthy dose of nonsense—to stimulate children’s imaginations. Deanne Fitzpatrick’s hooked rug illustrations bring freedom and texture to the verse, and the result is a tactile and joyful classic Fitch book.
