" Poetry and dancing fun for story time and children's programs. A welcome addition to poetry collections and as an introduction to world dance. " said.

" Love the bright, colorful illustrations. " said.

"I am excited about this book coming out in the spring and will provide a full review later, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to review it sooner! I received this book in advanced form, so I wasn't able to review the CD, but I had fun reading the poems of Feel the Beat: Dance Poems that Zing from Salsa to Swing by Marilyn Singer. This book is a must-have for any kids who enjoy or are interested in dances. As an adult, it took me back to my dancing lessons with my husband before we got married. The book features numerous dances from the Argentine Tango to the Two Step. I imagine this is going to be a favorite among many children." said.

"I have a soapbox and I climb up on it regularly to declare that picture books are NOT baby books, that they offer depth and wealth for anyone, any age, if we are willing to look and reread. Some books require a bit of preaching on my part, pointing out various riches, uses, and nuances.
FEEL THE BEAT needs no argument. The images, sounds, rhymes, and rhythms are appealing to any age- including adults. Actually, the informational asides about each form of dance, the enclosed CD, and the excellence of the text and illustrations make it a winner across the board.
" said.

" Poems are enhanced by the author's reading on the CD. Also, don't miss the special treat that shows Marilyn and her husband dancing the Salsa on the "Salsa" spread! " said.

" This was really well done. I could hear the music through the poetry, which is impressive considering how many different areas of dance the author was able to cover. " said.

" This book inspires me to ask the P.E. teacher if dance is part of the curricula. It would be fun to collaborate on a poetry and dance lesson! " said.

" Cool visual pairing of types of dance with their origin and an explanation of how they sound. " said.
