Praise For Dance With Me

"I liked the illustrations and how, as she explores the bedroom, the animals she saw were not real animals, just toys or a backpack, but when she talks to them, they are real ... I would recommend this book to little kids who love ballerinas or like to do ballet."
- Kids Book Buzz

"Jones's illustrations, which feature soft lines and vibrant colors, successfully convey the graceful movements of the ballerina. Most striking is when the toy animals morph into their real-life counterparts, resulting in life-like, detailed depictions.”
