Dance, Dance, Dance! by Ethan Long - ESSENTIAL

Long, Ethan Dance, Dance, Dance!  EARLY READER I Like to Read (Holiday House), 2018. $15. Content: G.  

Horse has some pretty great dance moves, but his friend Bug tells Horse that he isn’t really dancing because he doesn’t have music.  Horse continues to enjoy dancing and tells Bug that he should join him, but Bug doesn’t want to at first.  Eventually both friends dance and have fun, and Horse is exhausted in the end.   

This is an adorable early reader much the same style as Mo Willems’ Piggy and Elephant books.  Horse and Bug are adorable dancers and the illustrations are very expressive.  The sight words are simple yet the story is conveyed.  Super cute!
