Can you do what Toucan can?
He can also swing, slide and hide. He can even juggle a frying pan and a stew pan while performing the cancan on a fruit can!
BUT there are some things Toucan can't do. He can't stomp like you. He can't romp and hop because he might skip, trip, flip and flop.
Illustrated by the illustrious Sarah Davis, with vibrant, action-filled pages of much humour and dynamic movement, this is a very wordy book in all senses of the word ('scuse the pun).
With rhyme, onomatopoeia, repetition and plenty of word-play, this is an ideal book to read aloud in a group setting, and is perfect for honing vocabulary and comprehension skills, not to mention stand-up-and-dance interaction.
By the end of the book, Toucan is surrounded by a considerable crowd of dancing, grinning critters having an absolute ball--and kids will delight in this merry band of happy characters.
