A series of chipper marsupials act out the movements of the popular children’s song—koalas in trees clap their hands, kangaroos in the desert stomp their feet, and quokkas in a green field offer big smiles. Quintanilla renders her environments in a range of patterns and bright colors. Adult readers have a number of choices: read the text as written, perform the song, encourage young listeners to get up and dance themselves. VERDICT An appealing supplemental purchase.
