From the back cover – “Need a break? Hop to it! The hundred poems in this book will get you moving from nose to toes! You can climb like a cat, sign the phrase watch me, or do a binky rabbit dance. Discover factoids such as why pigeons make good messengers, who invented jumping jacks, and how sleeping can help you learn a new language. You’ll find pandemic poetry about wearing masks and virtual learning – plus poems that inspire you to stand up and speak out. Stretch your body and your mind with a 30-second brain break!”
