About the Author
Zita Newcome has written and illustrated several books for children, including the best-selling TODDLEROBICS, its sequel TODDLEROBICS: ANIMAL FUN, and a novelty book, POP-UP TODDLEROBICS. "Ive noticed that children love any rhyme that enables them to move around - it seems to really let loose their imaginations and high spirits," she says. "The key for whoever is actually reading this book is to try the actions too.Then everyone gets a good bit of exercise, and the children get the happy opportunity of seeing their parents or teachers tipping like a teapot!"
