Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by Booktalking.

My selection is "Dancing Wheels" written by Patricia McMahon and illustrated with photographs by John Godt.

McMahon tells  the story of Dancing Wheels, Mary Verdi-Fletcher's troupe, which combines standing and sitting (wheelchair) performers.  The text shares the history of the troupe, highlights dancers, and lead readers through practice to performance. 

"To date, the Dancing Wheels Company’s inspirational mission has touched over 4.5 million people through performances, school assemblies, residencies and workshops." -- from the Dancing Wheels website.
