Movement

<p>This collection uses Eric Carle's book <em>From Head to Toe </em>to explore how animals and people move. To talk about the book with your child, first read From Head to Toe together (or watch the video in the first box). Next, let your child look at the other animals on the webpage and decide what he/she wants to explore. Encourage conversation and exploration!</p><p><br /></p>
