Another Great Lucy Review!

Another lovely review for Lucy Can’t Dance, this time from Amy Elkavich, co-owner of Hello Again Books in Cocoa, FL:

There’s something universal about dancing. Lucy Can’t Dance takes the struggle of being different and turns it into a joyful celebration that promotes a positive message: be yourself. Lucy is a six-year-old girl who loves all kinds of dancing. She tries to learn how to dance, but each unsuccessful attempt leaves her frustrated and self-conscious. With some help from her mom, Lucy realizes that hiding her own style of dance isn’t much fun, so she decides to take a chance… and dance! This heartwarming story embraces uniqueness and celebrates differences. Lucy, a lover of chocolate cupcakes with rainbow sprinkles, finds her groove and inspires all of us to start dancing!

Thank you, Amy! And readers, if you find yourself in the Cocoa area, drop by Hello Again. It’s a sweet little store full of heart and love and BOOKS!

New Lucy Review!

A lovely new review for Lucy:

“Beautiful book. I love the subject, text and illustrations. Being shy about dancing and other things . . . a feeling many of us know well. Lucy’s bravery as a child inspires the adult in me.”

~Ellen C. Baxter, Adult Services Librarian, Fulton County Library System
