"Hilda Must Be Dancing" by Karma Wilson, illustrated by Suzanne Watts
Oh, this book was so cute! Karma Wilson's Hilda Must Be Dancing features a hippopotamus that keeps trying out new dances. She loves her new hobby, but the rest of the animals aren't so crazy about it- she is just too big! Her moves shake the jungle and just makes to much noise. Will Hilda find a quiet hobby?
I really enjoyed this book. Sure, the concept is pretty basic but still fun. It's great for getting kids involved in the reading ( Hilda must be dancing! gets repeated often) and teaches children a little bit about various kinds of dance. Young readers that are beginning dance lessons will relate to this book for sure. This is yet another book that I think should be in everyone's kid-lit collection.
