An American Library Association Notable Book that jumps with colorful images and rhyming text. "Bold, brash cut-paper collages in bright neon colors illustrate an exuberant rhyme about music and dance," says Booklist. And School Library Journal says: "Catchy and clever, this celebration of dance should have children tapping their toes and snapping their fingers as they read or listen."

New York Times best-selling author Linda Lowery has won many honors for her multi-cultural books for young readers. Born in Chicago, she lives in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. www.lindalowery.comFrom Publishers Weekly:
"Dance a mambo/ snap to a rap/ put on your cleats and tap, tap, tap," exhorts Lowery in this blithe boogie through different dance styles. Upbeat as the meter is, however, it varies not a whit as the topic shifts from jig to jive, wiggle to waltz-in its rhythm and structure, the verse could as well be about vegetables or animals as music and movement. To some extent Dypold (One Cow Coughs) follows Lowery's one-note lead-with the exception of the ambitious, full-bleed final spread, her cut-paper compositions, merry melanges of mostly tropical colors, swim in a surfeit of white space, giving the book a visual sameness. But Dypold jazzes up her work with unstated jokes: pigs dance the jig; bunnies hop; the cleat-wearing tap-dancers are football players. Unusual papers-e.g., a few have a tie-dye effect; others are patterned-add complexity, and perky perspectives impart a sense of motion. Ages 4-7.
