Clap Your Hands: Finger Rhymes

Sarah Hayes, Author, Toni Goffe, Illustrator, Toni Goffe, Photographer Lothrop, Lee and Shepard Books $13 (29p) ISBN 978-0-688-07692-4
Jiggling, wiggling, dancing, running, scrambling and beamingsmall characters on each page exhibit the finger movements to traditional and modern verses with abandon and plenty of good cheer. ""Here Is the Church,'' ``Mouse in the Hole'' and ``Pat-a-Cake'' are but some of the gleeful fare; most children will have at least a nodding acquaintance with some of the selections, but everyone will find fresh material as well. And Goffe, with inky cross-hatching and washes and stripes of watercolor, will inspire the most lapbound of readers to join with the breathless energy of the children on these pages. Ages 1-6.
