My Mama Had a Dancing Heart - "Bless the world it feels like a tip-tapping song-singing finger-snapping kind of day"
My Mama Had a Dancing Heart by Libba Moore
This is the oh so sweet story of a mother and her daughter and all the seasons during the year that inspire them to feel the wind and the sun and the chill in the air as they frolic and dance together. As an adult, the daughter becomes a dancer and as she laces up her ballet slippers she imagines her mother still saying:
"Bless the world it feels like a tip-tapping song-singing finger-snapping kind of day"
This book helps young children understand that dancing is an expression of feelings and that feelings can be translated into dance. The illustrations in this book are equally as expressive as the text, which is beautifully crafted.
