A playful picture book that urges readers to bop, bounce, and shake from the author of Fraidyzoo There are so many ways to dance! You can jiggle or wiggle or stomp. You can bop or bounce or go completely nuts. You can dance at the market or the bus stop, with your fingers or your face. You can dance because you're happy or even because you're sad.

But, what's the best way to dance?

Exactly how you want to!

In How Do You Dance?, author-illustrator Thyra Heder explores dance in all of its creativity, humor, and-most of all-joy, in a picture-book celebration of personal expression that will inspire young and old readers alike to get up and get moving.

This bopping, grooving picture book will inspire readers to get up and dance themselves. --School Library Journal **STARRED REVIEW** Heder explores dance with pages of graceful, rhythmic watercolors that show people of myriad ages, ethnicities, shapes, and abilities stretching, bopping, spinning, and swaying. Moves executed in exuberance, impulsiveness, and self-care climax in a gigantic, inclusive dance party complete with glittery disco ball. Heder's stream of dancers encourages everyone to find a way to dance--even, perhaps, the most stubborn nondancers. --Publishers Weekly **STARRED REVIEW** A gleeful, tender celebration of self-expression through movement, destined to become a favorite read-aloud. --Kirkus Reviews
