Litwin, Eric The Nuts Sing and Dance in your Polka-Dot Pants Candlewick, 2014. $15.99 PICTURE BOOK
Hazel Nut just
wants to dance, but not alone. Her family is too busy but that doesn’t get her
down, and she continues to dance in her disco styling polka dot pants. Finally
everyone gets involved when she brings Grandma Nut onboard.
This was an
odd book. It’s a book that really needs the music that goes with it, which you
can get, but would be confusing to a student who just checked the book out to
take home. Its nice that Hazel doesn’t give up and keeps a good attitude. The artwork
is bright and full of movement. I think the PE teacher might use this for a
PRE-K, EL(K-3) –OPTIONAL
