Gonna Move, Gotta Bounce, Have to Jumpity Jump!: How I Smooth Out My Jitter-Clumpy Day

We rated this book:


Gonna Move, Gotta Bounce, Have to Jumpity Jump is the story of a boy who has lots of energy. The boy gets in trouble a lot because of his energy; he feels like he has to move around a bunch and can’t sit still. He gets in trouble at school and home. To keep from getting in trouble, he learns how to move, bounce, and jump in ways that are helpful for him and others. These ways are exercising and doing yoga.

I liked the story overall because I like to move around, too. I don’t have as much energy as the boy in the story, but I know some kids who do, and even with me, I can use some of the exercises to get stronger. Some of the words in the story are bigger than I’m used to and I had to have them explained. The pictures are helpful because they show how to do the exercises. I have seen my mom do some of the same exercises, and I have done some of them myself, too.
