In this rollicking bedtime story, a sister and brother turn getting ready for bed into a fun-filled dance routine, from swirling in bath towels to tapping toothbrushes and swaying down the hall to their room. Rebecca Janni's rhythmic text and Tracy Dockray's bouncy illustrations are sure to get hands clapping and the littlest of feet moving so that kids can work off a last burst of energy before sweet dreams drift in.

Praise For Jammy Dance

“Dockray's watercolor-and-ink illustrations show the underwear-clad children gleefully jumping on the bed as they perform the refrain: "Bow to Brother./Bow to Sis./Swing your partner just like this.” —School Library Journal
