A dancing dinosaur discovers his family has some sweet moves
Darwin the Dinosaur loves to dance, but he needs someone to join his troupe. When Mom and Dad offer to show him their moves, Darwin laughs. There’s no way his prehistoric parents can groove like him, he thinks … until they show off some funky Jurassic dance steps! When Grandma arrives and throws down some old-school grooves, Darwin’s jaw drops. His family’s moves are fly! Together, the troupe dances until they drop, and Darwin goes to sleep dreaming of his crew and all their fresh moves.
This lively romp invites readers to explore trendy dances throughout history, from the Cha Cha Slide to the Cabbage Patch. Vibrant watercolor illustrations will encourage readers and their families to try some of these steps, too. Don’t miss this energetic celebration of intergenerational sharing and quality time with family.
