About the book: Can YOU dance like a peacock? Stand up straight, fluff your feathers, stretch your neck, & STRUT STRUT STRUT! Discover the amazing ways that animals use movement to communicate! Lighthearted text and vibrant illustrations teach readers how honeybees waggle, dolphins splash, and flamingoes march. It even invites kids to get up and try out some animal-inspired dance moves themselves. Perfect for classroom movement breaks!
