Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 078680453X, Hardcover)It is the last day of the harvest, and everyone at Appling Farm is preparing for the ring shout-a celebration filled with dance, song, and praise shouted out to God for the year's blessings. Everyone in Toby's family will play an instrument that speaks from their hearts directly to God's ears. Toby is finally old enough to join them in the event, but what will he bring? Sticks? A cowbell? Horse brushes? It's hard to decide, for it must feel right. And Toby's got to hurry-the ring shout starts tonight! Dancing the Ring Shout! is the first picture book honoring the longstanding ring shout tradition from west Africa and the American South. Heartfelt and beautifully told in a rainbow of colors that swirl like magic, this story is one to cherish all the year round.

It is the first year that Toby is old enough to attend the Ring Shout, a celebration when the hard work of harvest is done, but he cannot find an object that makes a noise which will speak from his heart to God's ears.
