A Review of Dancing Feet
Author: Lindsey Craig
Illustrator: Marc Brown
Recommended reader age: 1-5
The textured paper illustrations in this book are very reminiscent of an Eric Carle book. Each animal’s dancing feet make a particular sound. The child is given a clue on one page and asked to guess whose feet are dancing on the next page. My kids love blurting out whose feet they think are dancing – even though they’ve read this book many, many,… many times. The text’s rhythm is so nice that it almost sounds like you’re singing the words to a beat as you read them.
Its a very short and simple book but the number of times my kids have requested it makes it clear to me that it’s a good one. They love that the book concludes with happy and colorfully-dressed children dancing with their matching animal counterparts.
