Reviews

"The driving beat of debut author Schofield-Morrison's narrative is likely to have readers bouncing and tapping right along with her . . . An upbeat celebration of the senses, self-expression, and camaraderie." --Publishers Weekly

"The bright palette and vibrant tones of Morrison's loosely painted illustrations echo the energy of the text nicely . . . the book begs readers to sing and move along with this little dancer." --Booklist

"For a storytime that will get bodies rocking, fingers popping, and rhythm flowing." --Library Media Connection

"The little girl at the center of it all is wholly likable in her joyful approach . . . This will work well in an interactive storytime for preschoolers, as listeners are invited to shake and stomp along with the happy protagonist." --BCCB

"Ready made for storytime, Schofield-Morrison's text pulses with a beat of its own and practically demands audiences to clap along . . . The urban setting and varied cast of characters make this title particularly valuable, showcasing diversity as an integral part of everyday life." --School Library Journal
