If You’re Happy and You Know It

­Flowerpot. (Hazel Q Nursery Rhymes). Oct. 2022. 14p. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781486724031.
Toddler-PreS–A series of chipper marsupials act out the movements of the popular children’s song—koalas in trees clap their hands, kangaroos in the desert stomp their feet, and quokkas in a green field offer big smiles. Quintanilla renders her environments in a range of patterns and bright colors. Adult readers have a number of choices: read the text as written, perform the song, encourage young listeners to get up and dance themselves.
VERDICT An appealing supplemental purchase.
