Dinosaur dance-off  Cover Image Book Book

Dinosaur dance-off / written by Jorden Foss ; illustrated by Sara Theuerkauf.

Foss, Jorden, (author.). Theuerkauf, Sara, (illustrator.).


"Darwin the Dinosaur loves to dance, but he needs someone to join his dance troupe. He searches high and low, with his little (unnamed) pet turtle, and whom does he find? Mom and Dad! Darwin knows there's no way Mom and Dad can keep up with his moves ... until they show off some Jurassic dance steps that prove even prehistoric parents can be the coolest--and grooviest--dinosaurs around. Mom, Dad, and Darwin have a blast showing off their moves, from the Cha Cha Slide to the Running Man, when Grandma makes an unexpected grand entrance. She twirls in and let's them know--"those moves are fine, but this fossils got grooves that get better with time." Darwin's jaw hits the floor when Grandma throws down some old school throwbacks like the Jitterbug and the Mashed Potato. At the end of a dance-filled day, Darwin's parents tuck him in with the promise of teaching him more dance moves tomorrow. He goes to sleep happy, knowing he's found himself the best dance crew ever. Jam-packed with fun and great energy, this is a rollicking romp through the cultural history of trendy dance fads, each one sillier than the next. But, at its core, it's also a story of intergenerational sharing that will encourage kids and their parents (and grandparents!) to get up and bust a move together."-- Provided by publisher.
