“The driving beat of debut author Schofield-Morrison's narrative is likely to have readers bouncing and tapping right along with her . . . An upbeat celebration of the senses, self-expression, and camaraderie.” —Publishers Weekly
“The bright palette and vibrant tones of Morrison's loosely painted illustrations echo the energy of the text nicely . . . the book begs readers to sing and move along with this little dancer.” —Booklist
“For a storytime that will get bodies rocking, fingers popping, and rhythm flowing.” —Library Media Connection
“The little girl at the center of it all is wholly likable in her joyful approach . . . This will work well in an interactive storytime for preschoolers, as listeners are invited to shake and stomp along with the happy protagonist.” —BCCB
