Children's LiteratureThe little girl has a bad case of the summertime blues when momma's gone to work and brother's off to camp. So as grandpa is flipping pancakes, her slippers go slipping and soon she is dancing. Little Miss High Energy and grandpa move through the day with dancing feet. Spirits soaring, they play with the garden hose, cavort off to the zoo, and have an "easy oozy dance" in the rain. When momma and brother get home they join in the "jig-jigging" fun until "dancing holes in my socks, dancing holes in my shoes. Out of those holes run all my summertime blues." Breezy cartoon-like watercolors with delightful perspectives dance across the pages. Even the text seems to dance with swaying words and a punchy rhythm. Youngsters will surely want to kick up their heels and join in the fun! 2004, Doubleday Book for Young Readers, Ages 2 to 6.
