"Two poems about the joy of dancing start off this volume of illustrated poetry. And that is definitely what you feel and see as you read. Whether you're reading a poem about learning the cha-cha from your grandma at a family party or being forced into square dancing at school, your toes will start to tap and you will definitely want to dance!
The illustrations in this book are multicultural and full of energy. Everyone will find a kind of dance that they might want to do. My favorite poem involves a mother and child who go to the library to learn how to swing dance!

"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." Ricki said.
" Love the bright, colorful illustrations. " Kristan 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. " Angela said.
