From School Library Journal:

Grade 5 Up In her new anthology, Morrison demonstrates the same strong affinity for motion poems that she did in her two previous collections of her poetry of sports and motion ( The Sidewalk Racer 1977 and The Break Dance Kids 1985, both Lothrop). The 88 poems here move from traditional dance calls (``Swing her fast, swing her slow/ Swing her round till she yells `Whoa!' '') to classics (Poe's ``The Bells'') to modern authors (John Updike's ``The Recital '') . The book is divided into ten sections, ranging from dance to sports to technology to the mind. Whether it be James Laughlin's tribute to Martha Graham (``but only the pure/ elements moving as/ music moves moving/ from her into us'') or Martin Robbins' `` Winter Pause: Mt. Liberty, N.H.'' (``While sound/ Ticks snow/ Around/ You''), each poem sends out waves of sound and motion that echo in the mind. The clean typeface and crisp design of the book allow the poems to move off the page and into the readers' world. Kathleen Whalin, Public Library of Columbus and Franklin County, Reynoldsburg, Ohio
