The Lovereading4Kids comment

From a truly special new voice in picture books, the award-winning author-illustrator of Oliver comes a heart-warming story about finding strength in your friends, overcoming your fears and following your dreams! It glows from the inside out and is also a book that will move you to be yourself, exactly as you are, and – of course! – get dancing! It is perfect for budding dancers and singers alike, and for those who have a secret special talent that they might just be too shy to share.

Synopsis

Frances Dean Who Loved to Dance and Dance by Birgitta Sif

Frances Dean loves to dance. In her every waking moment, she is inspired to move - she feels the wind and dances, hears the singing of the birds and dances. But as soon as anyone is around, her knees begin to tremble, butterflies start to flutter in her tummy and...she forgets how to dance. Will she ever find the courage within herself to share her talent with other people and...feel free? But then, one day, Frances Dean notices something - someone - unusual and it surprises her and inspires her all at once...
