Mimi loves going to her mama's dance class. Especially when Mama lets her dance the adults! Mimi is so proud of herself ­ her poise, her rhythmic movement, and her leotard. Until one day, another little girl comes to a dance class in a beautiful, fluffy pink tutu. Luckily, Mimi's mama, aunta and grandmothers have the perfect solution. An exquisite handmade lapa skirt will make Mimi shine ­ and connect to her African heritage.

This book would be great to read if students were discussing African American culture and dance. This book consists of a lot of words that belong in the African American culture.

I really enjoyed this book by Tynia Thomassie. I thought it taught girls to go after what they love to do as well as embrace their culture. I loved at the end how Mimi's family made her the lapis. I think this sends a good message to children and that is to embrace their culture and differences and be proud of them.
