About the Book: Aspen & Sycamore Saps live on Maple Street with Mama and Mee. The family enjoys the blackberry bushes growing in the yard until the plants spread out of control. The kids want to get some animals to help, but first they’ll need to convince Mama and Mee. Will their new animal friends help? Or will things get a little crazy?

Move along with the quirky collection of animals, firefighters, and more, joined by a professional ballerina. This interactive story will get kids off the couch, exploring movement and dance fundamentals.

The Grumpy Goat is ideal for children 4-7. It features Aspen (no pronouns), Sycamore (she), Mama (she), Mee (she), firefighters, a goat, a pig, and a llama. Major themes include problem-solving, the value of family, and kindness to animals. Dance-It-Out!s are above level (language-wise) as they're intended to be initially enjoyed with a caregiver or teacher. (~700+Lexile)

Ballerina Konora joins the pages with photos and suggestions for movement exploration. Three books in one: readers can enjoy the story, act out the tale in their own way, or try Konora’s suggested activities, designed by an award-winning ballet teacher to develop body awareness and movement knowledge.

* It’s one thing to listen to a story, talk about a story and see the pictures. But to engage in the story with mini objects makes the story more meaningful for a child. Very helpful to support comprehension of the story.

The Say & Play Story Kits are designed to make reading more interactive and allow for a variety of language concepts to be easily addressed in speech therapy.
