A great place to start with print motivation is to use your child’s imagination and build from there. The book The Croaky Pokey by Ethan Long has the hokey pokey in a “froggy” style and will be sure to interest kids as they pretend to be frogs and do the actions in the book. Children will interact with the book in a positive way, which will encourage an enjoyment of books and reading.

I finished a book called The three terrible trins. This is about 3 mice with no father. They are convinced by their mother to scare away the house cats. They start by yelling in the cats ears. This book is pretty funny! The only way to know what happens is to read it!
