Picture Book – How Do You Wokka-Wokka?

How do you wokka-wokka? A boy walks down a city street asking all of the children, and they demonstrate their own unique dancing style. Some like to wokka-wokka like a flamingo in a flocka, others like a marichi with maracas.

Kids of every shade and hue are represented on this city block, in illustrations done oils. Individuality is celebrated in the poem, as everyone wokka-wokka’s in their own way. As they walk down the street, creating an ever-increasing parade, the children continue their own particular wokka-wokka, until it seems that everyone is getting in on the action – lots of individuals forming together to be a part of a group.

The language is playful and rhythmic, lending itself to being read aloud. This book will work well shared one-on-one or with a group.
