Roscoe decides to take tap dancing lessons because he loves the noise the shoes make. He agrees to be in a show with his friend, Emma. While they are practicing on the playground, some of the older boys tease Roscoe. Roscoe then makes the decision to get out of doing the show, but worries about the impact on his friendship with Emma. The author presents Roscoe's take on the situation in a funny, but believable way. This story provided a great opportuity to discuss roles males participate in, but get teased about. In this case, tap dancing and nursing. It also taught the lesson that friendship requires acts of unselfishness.
