Join the October Read & Romp Roundup!

This month is going by so quickly. I don't know about you, but we aren't even ready for Halloween at our house. The decorations aren't up, and only one of my two daughters has a costume to wear so far! I can tell the rest of the month is going to be a busy one. Nonetheless, I'm actually going to try to post the October Read & Romp Roundup by the end of the month. I think it may be a first!

I know not all of my readers celebrate Halloween, but I still have a feeling a few of the submissions this month will have to do with monsters or goblins or ghosts. Or at least I hope so...because that would be fun!

So, this is the official call for submissions for the October Read & Romp Roundup. If you have a recent (or even not so recent) blog post that involves picture books or children's poetry AND dance, yoga, or another form of movement, just leave a link to your post in the comments below. I'll gather up all of the links and summarize them in a new post at the end of the month.

If you're new here or aren't familiar with the roundups, you can read some of the old ones here. Looking forward to hearing your new ideas!

Submissions are open until Monday, October 29, 2012.


  1. Hi Kerry,

    I'm excited to submit Pumpkin Circle in the round up this month! It's a big hit!

    1. Thanks, Maria. I'm excited you submitted it, too. Perfect for the fall!

  2. Hey Kerry,

    The big one I did this month was Josephine Wants to Dance

    But I also 2 books by Vincent X. Kirsch that have dancing characters. They aren't specifically about dance, but the dance elements are quite fun. The first is The Chandeliers

    And the second is Forsythia and Me

    As always, thanks so much for hosting!

    1. Hi, Amy. Thanks so much for your submissions. So glad you are a regular contributor to the roundup!

  3. Hi Kerry,

    Your posts are DA's best picture book contributions! But, I'll submit my review of Barefoot Books' gorgeously illustrated Dance Stories and Ballet Stories:, and my list of 9 dancer biographies for younger readers. Thanks for all you do for dance literature!!

    1. Hi, Nichelle. That's so so sweet of you :) Thanks for all you do for dance education, too!! I am excited to read your post today on buns. Now that both my girls are in ballet class, I really need to learn how to do them right. You should see the mess I make. Thanks for submitting two posts to the roundup, too. I love both posts and really appreciate it!
