Fancy footwork

This week in the library, we've read a few books that feature fancy footwork: Charles R. Smith Jr.'s Winning Words: Sports Stories & Photographs and Debbie Allen's Dancing In The Wings.

In Winning Words, we read a chapter about football, a mini-play about a team with no points and (needless to say) no wins for an entire season. Faced with their final game, can the few uninjured players left on the team score and win? You have to read it to find out!

Dancing In The Wings Dancing In The Wings by Debbie Allen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
We love the story of Sassy, a would-be ballerina with big feet and too-long legs -- not least because of her big, funny mouth! A fun read-aloud that's a crowd-pleaser with boys as well as girls, with a good reminder that being different isn't a bad thing.
