Hop, Skip, and Jump, Maisy! Lucy Cousins
It's no secret that I'm a Maisy fan. I like the bold, bright colors and fat black outlines in these books. This is a hardcover book, but it's geared young like all Maisy books, and could easily become a board book. So it seems perfect for readertotz.
The pop-ups enhance the energetic movements here--kicking a ball, touching toes, and jumping rope, among others. The pop-ups move really well and are cute and clever. Although it's not as sturdy as a board book, it should hold up to use.
In the afternoon, Maisy skateboards and skips and jumps rope, like this.

Perfect to get your energetic totz going!
