Staff Reviews


During this season filled with holiday parties, this is the perfect book to remind you of how to get your groove on. The delightful illustrations inspire you to be playful, cut loose, make up your own moves, and celebrate movement. I dare you to read this book and not jump up and dance around. Remember, it simply isn't a party without dancing!  

— From Kimberly

**STARRED REVIEW**
"A gleeful, tender celebration of self-expression through movement, destined to become a favorite read-aloud."

— Kirkus Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Heder explores dance with pages of graceful, rhythmic watercolors that show people of myriad ages, ethnicities, shapes, and abilities stretching, bopping, spinning, and swaying. Moves executed in exuberance, impulsiveness, and self-care climax in a gigantic, inclusive dance party complete with glittery disco ball. Heder’s stream of dancers encourages everyone to find a way to dance—even, perhaps, the most stubborn nondancers."

— Publishers Weekly

"Children and adults of many skin tones, body types, and dance styles boogie through this book. . . Warm and funny, this lively picture book would work equally well as a raucous readaloud and a companion to creative movement activities."

— Horn Book Magazine

"This bopping, grooving picture book will inspire readers to get up and dance themselves."

— School Library Journal
