About this title

Synopsis:

It is the last day of the harvest, and everyone at Appling Farm is preparing for the ring shout-a celebration filled with dance, song, and praise shouted out to God for the year's blessings. Everyone in Toby's family will play an instrument that speaks from their hearts directly to God's ears. Toby is finally old enough to join them in the event, but what will he bring? Sticks? A cowbell? Horse brushes? It's hard to decide, for it must feel right. And Toby's got to hurry-the ring shout starts tonight! Dancing the Ring Shout! is the first picture book honoring the longstanding ring shout tradition from west Africa and the American South. Heartfelt and beautifully told in a rainbow of colors that swirl like magic, this story is one to cherish all the year round.
