Review:

Folks will do almost anything if they're happy (and they know it)--from flapping their wings to touching their toes. At least they will in David A. Carter's pop-up version of the popular play song. Preschoolers will join in with glee, singing, "If you're happy and you know it...," while they help the playful animal characters clap their hands, wag their tails, and wink their eyes. Children pull simple tabs to animate the brightly hued cut-paper cat, dog, skunk, chicken, owl, and mouse. On the last page, all six animals pop up to "shout hooray" in a dramatic display of Carter's paper engineering flair. Musical notation for the song appears on the back cover.

Carter has created many well-loved interactive picture books, including another pop-up nursery song, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, as well as Alpha Bugs: A Pop-Up Alphabet and Easter Bugs: A Springtime Pop-Up. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly:

Two familiar songs spring to life thanks to David A. Carter's movable illustrations. Youngsters can open a farmyard fence as a pig jumps out with its sound, "oink oink," showing through a die-cut opening in Old MacDonald Had a Farm. With the pull of a tab, the cat claps and rooster flaps in If You're Happy and You Know It. The final spreads in both books pop up, with all the animals spelling "E-I-E-I-O!" in one and all the animals shouting "HOORAY!" in the other. Music and lyrics appear on the back covers. (Aug.)
