Scholastic, 2014. ISBN 9781742836454.
'Aussie edition' Hokey pokey brings a collection of Aussie animals together to sing the traditional song 'The hokey pokey'. Get your child up and dancing with the actions and singing along with the lyrics. Have them investigate the different images, full of bright colours and Australian animals doing their own actions. There is so much going on in this book that your child won't know where to start and an accompanying CD sung by child entertainer, Colin Buchanan, is an added bonus. Highly recommended for all young readers. It would also be great in the classroom where teachers could use it as a 'brain break' as younger children learn the names of body parts and learn to follow actions.
