About the book:
Find jumping jubilance with Dance-It-Out’s charming series debut, ideal for kids ages 4-7.

Joey Kangaroo never learned how to jump, and he desperately wants to find the secret. Kids move alongside Joey and Juniper with Ballerina Konora as inspiration in this interactive story of determination and friendship.
Movement, technique, and dance concepts in this story include:

Forward Port de Bras
Leap/Grand Jeté
Frog Jump
Stretches (Up/Out/Child’s Pose/Yawn)
Body Parts’ Isolation: Knees, Tongue, Arms, Back, and Head
Small/Medium/Large Jumps
Low/High Levels
Extended Legs/Arms
Corps/Synchronized Dancing
Emotions in the Body

Themes include Making New Friends, Being Polite, Friendship, and Empathy. The Dance-It-Out! books can be used as a supplement for classes or camps. Joey Finds His Jump! pairs well with themes such as Kangaroos, Frogs, Dancing, New Experiences, Meeting New People, Good Manners, Being Kind, Going to the Zoo, Emotions, Adventures, Ballet, or Jumping.

Featured characters include Joey (he/him) and Juniper (she/her). Background characters include dancers (femininely dressed), diverse children at the zoo, and nonbinary animals: giraffe, hippo, lion, and orangutan. Dance-It-Out!s are a bit above level (language-wise) as they are often initially enjoyed with a caregiver or teacher.

Dance-It-Out! movement journeys are ideal for dance, pre-ballet, creative movement, preschool, daycare, early learning, physical education, homeschool, kindergarten, or first-grade activities. The full collection features male, female, and nongendered diverse characters. Books make a great gift for boys or girls interested in dance, ballet, gymnastics, or yoga, or reluctant readers who enjoy getting up and moving.
