Adorable illustrations and great inclusion of actual dance terminology. I personally think the cadence and rhyming make this a much easier read-aloud than the companion "Love is a Truck" book, so that gave it a boost in my book :)

I really love this book, though I may be slightly biased as I grew up dancing. The illustrations are my favorite!!! I love that this book includes dance terminology and vocabulary, which of course adds some French exposure. :)
