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!
The All-American Jump and Jive Jig is such a fun and colorful book. Smiley Boy's favorite dance is the Brooklyn Boogie--he loves putting his arms up and stomping around.
There's several more dances representing cities all across America, and I like how there's a nod to Hawaii in the book with the Hilo Hula.
I also like how the book depicts notable aspects about each city and state, so the boys can learn more about each one, for instance, there are illustrations of the mountains in Colorado, the snow in Alaska, and the coast of California.
The All-American Jump and Jive Jig is a great read that's fun, colorful, lively, and educational too!
