A read and dance book by the author of the other Do Princesses...? series! Join our favorite princess as she and her family dance, boogie, and jam. This happy princess discovers that having the right beat and looking on the bright side is all a girl needs to make her a princess.

Available for Pre-order:


Let's Boogie! That's the message of this cute picture book as it follows a young girl through her dancing day. This isn't a story as such, but rather a fun journey as the girl and her brother (And other family members) go through a day dancing, prancing and waving away.

There isn't much text; only a few words on each page, and those are as basic as basic can be. Much of this book hangs on the illustrations. They are colorful, fun and a joy to flip through. In other words, kids will love gazing at the fun adventures this young girl and her dance bring her on. 

The main point of this book is to get kids to move. And they will. They are encouraged through the words and illustrations to wiggle, wave and skip around just as the characters do. I see tons of laughter in young readers futures when they read this. 

This book is recommend for kids ages 3-7, but I see this as a better fit for the younger end of this group. Due to the lack of text and simplicity, I'd say it's geared for ages 2 to 4. 

Summed up, this is a fun read which draws kids in to dance right along. The illustrations are perfect and the words simple. I think young listeners will really enjoy this one.
