A joyful, musical book that is sure to get your toes tapping and your hips swinging! One of my favorite picture book reads this year.

Super cute story of a mother and daughter's trip to the park as the joy of music overtakes them and they find the rhythm in everyday things.

Cute book with dynamic pictures - a book that encourages readers to dance along!

Vibrant and full of movement, this story is a celebration of the noises, sounds and rhythms that can be found everywhere in the city. Colorful and full of opportunities for little readers to mimic sounds, this is great for reading with a group of children.

It's a sunny day in the city, and as one little girl walks to the park with her mum, she feels rhythm all around her…and she's not afraid to let it show: "I shook a rhythm with my hips. SHAKE SHAKE. I felt the rhythm with my knees. KNOCK KNOCK." Her exuberance is infectious, and soon the park is transformed into an impromptu dance party, complete with marching band. Joy radiates from the vivid, exaggerated illustrations, while the rousing words (just right for reading aloud) encourage kids to do some stomping, bopping, and hopping of their own.
