On a simple trip to the park, the joy of music overtakes a mother and daughter. The little girl hears a rhythm coming from the world around her—from butterflies, to street performers, to ice cream sellers everything is musical! She sniffs, snaps, and shakes her way into the heart of the beat, finally busting out in an impromptu dance, which all the kids join in on! Award-winning illustrator Frank Morrison and Connie Schofield-Morrison, capture the beat of the street, to create a rollicking read that will get any kid in the mood to boogie.

Feel the rhythm with your body - use five senses of taste, touch, sight, hearing, and smell in order to discover the beat that's closer than you think.

A joyful, musical book that is sure to get your toes tapping and your hips swinging! One of my favorite picture book reads this year.

Vibrant and full of movement, this story is a celebration of the noises, sounds and rhythms that can be found everywhere in the city. Colorful and full of opportunities for little readers to mimic sounds, this is great for reading with a group of children.

It's a sunny day in the city, and as one little girl walks to the park with her mum, she feels rhythm all around her…and she's not afraid to let it show: "I shook a rhythm with my hips. SHAKE SHAKE. I felt the rhythm with my knees. KNOCK KNOCK." Her exuberance is infectious, and soon the park is transformed into an impromptu dance party, complete with marching band. Joy radiates from the vivid, exaggerated illustrations, while the rousing words (just right for reading aloud) encourage kids to do some stomping, bopping, and hopping of their own.
