"An important lesson about taking risks and following your passions is interwoven into this whimsical and enjoyable picture book about two often overlooked stars of dance history. I would recommend this book to kids, teachers, and dance enthusiasts everywhere!"
"Jitterbugs! is a fun way to introduce children to the pioneers of swing dancing, Harlem in the Swing Era, swing music, and the Savoy Ballroom. The endearing bug characters will draw children in, and teachers and parents will appreciate that the book gets kids up and moving."
"Jitterbugs! is so much fun and a great way to integrate arts and the Common Core. I absolutely LOVE the classroom guide. It is just fantastic! I will definitely be using it in my classroom next year."
