Read & Romp Roundup -- September 2012

Welcome to the September Read & Romp Roundup! Thanks, as always, to all of the contributors...and to you, the readers! Without further adieu, here are last month's submissions...

Angela at OMazing Kids added the picture book Apple Farmer Annie by Monica Wellington to her list of "Fall Faves." Angela describes the book and provides a comprehensive lesson plan to go along with it. Yoga poses, breathing exercises, suggestions for music, and sneak peeks of the book are all included!

I'm so happy that Erik from This Kid Reviews Books joined the roundup this month with a review of the picture book Tap Dance Fever by Pat Brisson and Nancy Cote. Check out Eric's post to learn more about the star of the book -- Annabelle Applegate -- and how she just can't stop dancing! Erik also includes a link to directions on how to make your own tap shoes. Fun!

In keeping with the seasons, Maria at Maria's Movers shares her creative movement ideas to go along with the picture book Mouse's First Fall by Lauren Thompson and Buket Erdogan. As you might expect, Maria even incorporates real leaves into her ideas for this book!

At Picture-Book-a-Day, Amy reviews one of her all-time favorite picture books about dance -- Angelina Ballerina! She also provides links to more information about Angelina, ideas for books to pair with this one, a hand print craft, and directions on making your own tutu!
