Preparing children for a lifetime of reading has never been more fun! Clara dreams of dancing like the elegant ballroom dancers on TV, so she and her friend Buster try the jitterbug, the cha-cha-cha and even jazz dancing. But after breaking a window, a vase, and falling into the trash can, the friends are banished from the house. Clara thinks there's no hope, but Buster knows that practice makes perfect and before long they are waltzing in the moonlight. A touching tale of friendship sure to engage any child who has ever needed encouragement. Share-a-Story books feature fun ideas for storytelling from renowned reading consultant Bernice Cullinan, activities to enjoy after reading the story, and bright photographic introductory pages that help make storytime a really special and rewarding experience.
