Dancing the Breeze
Illustrated by Jacqueline Rodgers. Bradbury, 1991.
JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD selection
“In lilting verse and fresh, beflowered illustrations, the relationship between a father and his young daughter is explored as they wait in a garden for the moon to rise. A gentle breeze sets the flowers swaying, and the two begin to dance…The poem’s moonlit ending is a natural lullaby, but its sweet liveliness and warm father-child relationship make it appealing for reading aloud at any tIme.” SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
