Amazon: Got To Dance

by Heng-Cheong Leong, MyAppleMenu

Got To Dance

After a few years of absense, I'm bringing back links to the Amazon store, where you can buy books (and many other things), and I got to get paid for a few dollars towards the web hosting bill for this web site.

So, for the month of May 07, I'm going to feature books that my daughter loves. (For your reference, my daughter will be 5 this year.)

First up, it's Got to Dance by M.C. Helldorfer, with illustrations by Hiroe Nakata. My daughter loves to dance, and she also loves stories, so this is a great combination.

School Library Journal: "This joyful book presents a high-energy portrait of a young girl. With her mother at work and her brother at camp, she has "nothing to do" and a case of "the sumertime blues" that can only be cured by dancing.

Booklist: The energy of the words is reinforced both by a swooping type design and Nakata's spontaneous watercolors.
