 Sweetly illustrated in a richness of color that is still soft and comforting. A shy little girl, Frances Dean, simply loves to move and to dance. But she is shy and self-conscious that others might see her. Abundant with the accompanying birds who flock to her beautiful movements, she twirls and leaps and moves. But she stops because others are watching. Soon she learns that she can still dance and that others enjoy it.  This lovely and lively little book will strike home to the heart of the shy child helping them to understand it is o.k. to be shy and that they can overcome it. Lovely. DISCLOSURE: I received a complimentary copy to facilitate this review. Opinions are solely my own.

Charlotte P., age 6, Northern Colorado Mensa The book is about a little girl, Frances Dean, who likes to dance but she didn’t like other people to know she can dance because she’s shy and a little afraid. Frances learns something helpful from another younger girl and some birds. The book is fiction, has good pictures, and the words are perfect for a new reader like me. Other kids will enjoy the book because kids can learn from each other and from birds. Frances is afraid to show her dancing talent but she learns that she doesn’t have to be afraid. If you’re shy, that’s okay. You can show one person what you can do and not be afraid. What’s interesting about the book is that it’s okay to learn from a younger kid and it’s okay to be shy. Even shy kids can share their talent (Frances’ was dancing) with someone because other people may want to learn
