About the Author

Maine Diaz was born in La Plata, Argentina. She studied Audiovisual communications at Universidad De La Plata and her work can be seen in a number of films as well as children's books.
"Dancing is one of the most universal elements of cultures the world over. In onomatopoeic, rhyming text, Bolling encourages readers to dance in styles including folk dance, classical ballet, breakdancing, and line dancing. Read aloud, the zippy text will engage young children... (and) will get toes tapping." -- Kirkus Reviews "Debut author Bolling presents 10 forms of dance in short, rhyming stanzas. Alongside the text are bright, spirited illustrations of children doing various dances such as Kathak (India) and Kuku (Guinea), as well as styles with origins in the United States, including break dancing and disco. Images depicting dances from the United States feature groups of children who are diverse in race, body size, and abilities. A fun and lively title." --SLJ
