"My mama had a dancing heart and she shared that heart with me." A young woman looks back upon her mother's joyous embrace of life in a memory-rich picture book that recalls the many times in her childhood they danced together to celebrate the seasons. Libba Moore Gray's tender celebration of a warm and cherished mother-daughter relationship is movingly illustrated by Raul Colón's graceful, deep-toned paintings that are burnished with plum and golden hues. (Ages 7-10)
