PreSchool-Grade 3–Leo and Diane Dillons book (Blue Sky Press, 2002) about tap-dancer Bill Bojangles Robinson (1878-1949) received a Coretta Scott King Honor for its illustrations. The audio format greatly enhances the story, as Charles Turner narrates the tale of the man who talked with his feet. Live background music from the 1920s, punctuated by the rhythmic tapping of feet enliven the reading of the rhymed text. In the book, Diane Dillons colorful gouache illustrations of inner-city scenes are met with cleverly designed graphics of Bojangles, his tapping feet depicted in shades of grey prompting the illusion of movement. This wonderful introduction to a talented African-American entertainer is appropriate for group or individual enjoyment, and will be a welcome addition to the music, movement, and art curriculum.–Kirsten Martindale, formerly Menomonie Public Library, WI
