How Do You Wokka-Wokka? (Hardcover)
Say "HEY!" to your neighbors and get your dance on! Jazzy rhythms, silly rhymes, and welcoming images are guaranteed to entice little readers.
Some days you wake up and you just gotta wokka. Wokka what? Wokka-wokka! It’s about movement. It’s about dance. It’s about shimmy-shakin’, be-boppin’, and more! It’s about gathering friends and joining the party. The creative team behind MY FATHER THE DOG returns with a call-and-response for preschoolers, an exuberant invitation to be part of the fun — and show your stuff!
About the Author
Elizabeth Bluemle co-owns the Flying Pig Bookstore in Charlotte, Vermont, with stand-up comedian Josie Leavitt. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Writing for Children from Vermont College. My Father the Dog is pure fiction, she says, "This book is not based on my very own father, Honest, Dad, it's not."
Randy Cecil has illustrated many books for children, including LOOKING FOR A MOOSE by Phyllis Root, AND HERE'S TO YOU! by David Elliot, WE'VE ALL GOT BELLYBUTTONS! by David Martin, and MY FATHER THE DOG by Elizabeth Bluemle. He is also the author-illustrator of GATOR, about Duck's friend and fellow carousel animal. Randy Cecil lives in Houston.
In an infectious burst of movement, rhythm, and rhyme, a multiethnic cast of children in an urban neighborhood strut their stuff and celebrate their uniqueness.
