Today is National Dance Day! Celebrate with a dance story or stop by our CD collection in the Children's Department for some boogie-worthy tunes. I've included a few suggestions for books about dance below, but you can always find more under the subject headings for fiction and nonfiction dance books. If you're feeling especially groovy today, come show me your best dance moves.
A penguin waddles along, searching for the dancing friend he met yesterday, while encountering other penguins, and a hungry seal on the way.
On a trip to the park with her mother, a young girl hears a rhythm coming from the world around her and begins to move to the beat, finally beginning an impromptu dance in which other childen join her.

I’ve been working on my Connect Your Summer badges. This is a lot of work! I’m lucky I’m On-the-Scene all the time, so finding good books and going to programs isn’t too hard for me. I’d love to hear about what you’re doing to earn your Connect Your Summer badges. If you have any good books or movies to suggest, you can leave them in the comments. I think my favorite book so far has been Finding Winnie, and my favorite movie was DisneyNature’s Bears. I need to work a little harder on my eLectrified badges, too.
Don't forget your last day to earn and claim badges is Wednesday, August 17 before the library closes at 9:00 PM. Then come to our final party on Saturday, August 20 for a fantastic wrap-up to the summer.
