Colorful and fun poems celebrating music and dance. ( )

A book of poems that could be used to promote movement in children or read for music class. ( )

This would be a wonderful book to have in a children's music class. I feel this book could be useful to children of all ages. My two favorites were "What is Jazz?" and "Birds' Square Dance." I really like the rhythm of these two. You can take this book and use it in so many ways. It could be used to: teach rhythm, poetry, for entertainment, as a sing along; there are just so many possibilities. ( )

A collection of poems that is sure to deliver a positive feeling amongst all. The illustrations that are created with the use of cut-outs, compliment the simple, but enjoyable, poems well. What I especially appreciate about the illustrations is that they portray individuals with many different shades of skin, perfect for a book about music and dance belonging to various different cultures.

Favorite Except:

“Can you dance a question mark?
Can you dance an exclamation point?
Can you dance a couple of commas?
And bring it to a finish with a period?”

From the poem Line Written for Gene Kelly to Dance to, by Carl Sandburg
