I really fell in love with this book the moment I saw it. What better way to bring people together than dance. It reminds us all that no matter where we come from, how old we are, or what we look like we can unite and come together through the universal language of music and dance. I really enjoyed the artwork, and especially enjoyed the last few pages that showcase different dances and where they come from. This book is great for young readers and is really wonderful! Now who feels like dancing?? I do!
