We partnered with Scholastic to share this post!
My family and I enjoy story time together. We also love dancing and goofing around. So, when we discovered Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown, we could hardly wait to party with Groovy Joe. From best sellers Eric Litwin and Tome Lichtenheld, comes Groovy Joe. A lovable guitar-strumming dog always ready to rock.
Last year we were all about Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs, this year, we’re singing, dancing and laughing with Groovy Joe – and there’s nothing better than that! After a long day, all I want to do is come home and relax with my family, but sometimes we have to shake our wiggles out. The Groovy Joe book collection is perfect for that! From start to finish we boogied our way through the Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown book. My chiclets and I shared lots of laughs and came up with some groovy dance moves. It was a great time to bond and just be silly! The rhymes and tunes are so catchy, you find yourself singing through the book rather than reading it. Let’s just say, around our house, you can hear the chiclets singing from the other room “Disco Party! Bow wow!”. Okay… I admit, I take part in that too!!! LOL
Ready for the best part? Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown is also available in Spanish! I think I found some new tunes to listen to while I clean. Listos, vamonos! “Uno cantando asi ! Fiesta Disco! Bow wow! Fiesta Disco! “
Get a sneak peek of the English and Spanish Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown songs here.
Not only is this book great to let loose and enjoy yourself, we also loved the storyline behind Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown. The moral of the story is that there’s always room for one more. My chiclets and I took from it not to get upset about the small stuff, always keep others in mind. Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown is a fun way to talk with your little ones about being fair, being kind and how to have a good time.
Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown is recommended for children from ages 3-6, but is not limited. My chiclets are 6 and 9 and they were entertained throughout the book.
