Flip Flop Bop will have you and your audience ready to take off your shoes and head for the beach. School is out and the children trade school shoes for the footwear of summer–flip flops. The kids are joined by a dog, a cat, and a mouse as they bop into the new season of the year.
By the end of the book, folks of all ages are enjoying the freedom of summer shoes.
The illustrations are bright and busy. The text moves from “clippety clop” to “kazoobaloobadippy.” At this point, the dog remarks, “Now we’ve just gone too far.” I found my audience was ready to contribute their own nonsense words to the story. I used this book with All You Need for a Beach to book end an early summer story time. It would also fit with a shoe theme or a nonsense verse medley.
