The latest in the hugely successful scanimation series, follwing on from Kick! and Gallop! Can you WADDLE like a penguin? Slip-slide-swoop! Can you hop like a froggy? Flip-flop-floop! All animals move, but how they move-whether they waddle, stomp, or fly-is a source of endless fascination for children. WADDLE!, like its predecessors GALLOP! and SWING!, uses Scanimation techlogy to simulate movement by the simple turning of a page. Unlike the previous two books, though, WADDLE! also introduces colour into the text and illustrations, so children are learning two key preschool concepts at once: colours AND motion. Leaping green frogs; flapping red hummingbirds; slithering yellow snakes: these animals are truly amazing to see. The simple, rhythmic text is every bit as animated as the art itself, making it t only a fun and easy read-aloud experience for children, but one that invites them to imitate the motions they see. As ABC News pointed out in a recent story about Rufus, Rare is the children's book that begs to be read and tossed aside for a good romp-all at the same time. And Waddle's ending will have little ones shrieking with delight-and up and moving!
Rufus Butler Seder is an optical genius whose first significant invention was Lifetiles, glass-walled murals that appear to come to life when the viewer walks by. He has installed them at the Smithsonian, SeaWorld, Union Station among other museums, aquariums, train stations and ocean liners around the world. Next came Scanimation, and his company EyeThink, Inc., a business that produces a line of toys and gifts using technologies he's invented. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
