Updated and expanded classic thrills my kids!

Both my kids have been bouncing on our knees to the "this is the way the lady rides" ryhme since they were teensy. This book takes that great ryhme, elaborates it and illustrates is magnificently. We got it from the library and fell so deeply in love that we had to buy it. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the different characters such as knight, rajah and fairy give kids' imaginations a great spark! WE love this book!

Brightly illustrated book for the very young

Giddy-up! Let's ride! is a repetitive read-aloud and join-in book about the way that different children around the world (and knights and fairies) ride different animals. Each two-page spread shows a brightly painted picture of a different character riding. eg.This is the way the jockey rides. Faster-and-faster-and-faster-and-faster.This is the way the nomad rides. [on a camel] lolloppy-plod lolloppy-plod.The pictures are particularly fun because they are obviously painted with a brush and don't look too far out of the range of a child (until you contemplate the 3-D appearance and fine detail/character), and give a wonderful feeling of motion.
