Billy's first Dance, Veronica Randolph Batterson Billy's First Dance is yet another delightful heart-warming story created by Veronica Randolph Batterson. This author manages to put "heart" in her tales as she weaves characters who become endearing and may even remind you of lazy summer days spent barefoot and playing outside with your siblings. It is particularly good for the tween-age girl to read. Junie is a character of innocence. The reader watches her change, grow and mature while she and her non-typical family live and grow together. She is a day-dreamer who wants to be a writer. She is also the responsible sibling who mother's her younger brothers & sister. She and her half-siblings reside with their Grandmother & Aunt. Junie is particularly attentive to Billy who is inflicted with Spina-Bifida. (Another reason this is a great read for the tween) This story is full of compassion, love, good times & sad. It is a great read for your tween and is also a great pick for a parent or teacher to share. Renee Robinson
