An irresistible book of poems about dancing that mimic the rhythms of social dances from cha-cha to two-step, by the acclaimed author of Mirror Mirror
Marilyn Singer has crafted a vibrant collection of poems celebrating all forms of social dance from samba and salsa to tango and hip-hop. The rhythm of each poem mimics the beat of the dances’ steps. Together with Kristi Valiant’s dynamic illustrations, the poems create a window to all the ways dance enters our lives and exists throughout many cultures. This ingenious collection will inspire readers to get up and move!
Included with the book is an audio CD of the author reading each poem accompanied by original music from composer Jonathon Roberts.
Kristi Valiant is the illustrator of <i>Pretty Minnie in Paris</i>, <i>Pretty Minnie in Hollywood</i>, the Little Wings chapter book series, and <i>Penguin Cha-Cha</i>, which she wrote and illustrated. She graduated magna cum laude from Columbus College of Art & Design. Kristi lives (and dances!) in Indiana with her husband and daughters.
