" Glad it comes with a disc, because I feel like it really needs to have the music to "get" the idea behind the book. It's cool that all the poems share the meter of the dance they represent, but it's hard to get that feel just from print.Also, it doesn't help that I'm not a huge poetry fan, but I do admire what the author is attempting here.Illustrations are very nice. " said.

" Gorgeous poems - all written in tempo to match their accompanying dance style - so much fun to read aloud. Emma found the one about Polkas to be particularly hilarious! " said.

" 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.

" 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.

" Stunning each picture captures the dances that are beautifully put into poems. They are also good at explaining where each dance originated. " said.

" I loved that by speaking the poems aloud you can feel the rhythm of the dance. What a great idea! " said.
