DANCIN' IN THE KITCHEN by Wendy Gelsanliter

DANCIN' IN THE KITCHEN

Age Range: 4 - 8

KIRKUS REVIEW

Spices don’t have to come from jars—this family flavors its cooking with promenades and pirouettes. When the grandparents, parents, and children gather to make a meal, the first ingredient is music: “Dancin’ in the kitchen/The family’s packed in tight/I think we may be/Dancin’ in the kitchen all night.” Priceman’s illustrations are a bright salsa of mango, olive, blueberry, and tomato, and the stirring, dipping, mixing, and waltzing of the characters are contagious. Sometimes the rhyme is a little stodgy, but for families who like to have both the radio and the stove on high, this book cooks. (Picture book. 4-8)
