Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown

{We’re rocking out to the new Groovy Joe book in partnership with our sponsor Scholastic!}

Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown is a newly released book, the second in the Groovy Joe series created by bestsellers Eric Litwin and Tom Lichtenheld.. And recommended for ages 3-5 but fun for the whole family! Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown merges music and early literacy together and a great way to read and sing with your little ones. The kids and I had fun reading this over-sized and colorful book together. The easy rhyming and counting helped make the story really come to life. We all took turns singing the lyrics and adding up all of Groovy Joe’s friends. The story and math equations were a perfect fit for my beginner reader. He was very excited that he could almost read the entire book on his own. We also had a great time visiting to read along in both English and Spanish, perfect for bilingual speakers and readers.

Why read with your kids?
Reading along with your children is important when learning and developing language skills. It helps your children pronounce words and visualize how the word is spelled. Reading can help your child with their knowledge of grammar and help them become articulate communicators. Bottom line, reading is another great and effective tool to teach young children a new language.

“Groovy Joe is totally fun.
He's a tail-wagging, song singing party of one!

And he rocks like this:
Disco party bow wow!”

“In this fun book, Groovy Joe has a dance party. But Oh no! More and more doggies are knocking on his door, asking to come in. Will there be enough room for everyone? Joe knows just what to do and soon enough he everyone moving and grooving -- the party has only just begun! Signature rhyme, repetition, and musical writing style, combined with wild and witty illustrations infused and gentle math concepts come together to create an unforgettable new Groovy Joe story all about positivity, creativity, math, and kindness. Groovy Joe is back, ready to get groovy!”

Groovy Joe is back in another foot-stomping story filled with gentle math and a positive message that will get kids grooving and reading along.
