- “Wade’s Wiggly Antlers” written by Louise Bradford, illustrated by Christine Battuz.
This fun picture book isn’t about wiggly toes, but I had to include it because who doesn’t want to read about wiggly antlers? In this story, a young moose is pretty worried when his antlers become wiggly. His mom reassures him that this is a natural process, but it’s still unsettling. Little ones of the human variety can relate because baby teeth get wiggly, and everything works out in the end. I have to wonder — does the tooth fairy know the antler fairy?
- “Who Has Wiggle-Waggle Toes?” written by Vicky Shiefman, illustrated by Francesca Chessa.
When I was a little girl, I was a huge fan of interactive songs like “Hokey Pokey” and “Itsy Bitsy Spider” because I could move to the music — awesome! “Who Has Wiggle-Waggle Toes?” is also interactive and a fun way to engage little ones with books and movement. By the way, I give every reader permission to dance while reading. You’re welcome.
