February is Black History Month!  A perfect time to read about African-American dance legend, Josephine Baker, who erupted onto the dance scene in the roaring 20’s.  “She flung her arms, She flung her legs, Like she flung her heart and soul.  ‘Cause DANCIN’ makes you HAPPY when nothin’ else will.”  Written in a snappy, spoken word style, this book begs to be read aloud; better yet, performed!  Brightly colorful, spirited illustrations by Christian Robinson fit perfectly with the text. Great for 5+!

Thanks for the review Chrissy!
