Staff Reviews

The little, just-hatched chick heads to the dance hall, but doesn’t know how to dance! The other animals are more than happy to help by showing their moves (hula hippo, hopping bunny, even gators and beavers get in on the action).  When the text isn’t focusing on the action of the dance, it uses alliteration, rhymes, and slant rhymes to emphasize the musicality of the story. While pull-tab board books are becoming more and more durable every year, this one has my all-time favorite new innovation: a thick, clear plastic over the moving parts, so that tiny curious fingers will be able to touch without risk of damaging the dancing animals! And don’t miss the big finish, after Little Chickie learns to dance from all of the new friends!
