Let’s dance! Come along on a joyful journey across America, where children from east, west, north, and south show off their coolest moves.

From the Juneau Jitterbug to the Hilo Hula, the Brooklyn Boogie to the Miami Mambo, these dances will entice young readers to gather family and friends, get up, and groove. Which will be their favorite—Maine’s Rockland Sock Hop or Michigan’s Mackinac Milkshake? The Lubbock Line Dance or the Rockies’ Elevation Celebration?  Every dance is irresistible fun, and will set happy feet in action!

M.P. Hueston’s witty, rhythmic verse and Amanda Haley’s colorful pictures make following along easy--and will encourage kids to come up with their own choreographed creations!
