Groovy Joe Dance Party Countdown GIVEAWAY

Hi everyone! Many of you are very familiar with the name Eric Litwin and for those of you who may think they are not, this might help...

Eric Litwin is the # 1 New York Times best-selling author of the original four Pete the Cat books, The Nuts, and Groovy Joe.

Ring a bell?? I bet so!!! His books truly are one of a kind that gets students engaged, excited to read, and are books that they remember for many years! Eric does an absolutely amazing job at bringing literacy and music together in his books and in the classroom! 

Many of you may have read some previous blog posts of mine about his books (Pete the Cat, The Nut Family, and Groovy Joe). These books have been HUGE hits in my classroom and stories that my students LOVE to read over and over! To say that I am a fan of Eric Litwin and his books is an understatement! Not only do I find his books to be so much fun, but seeing the excitement, joy, and learning through my students lets me know that his books are must haves!

Well I am excited to share that... Eric Litwin has done it again!! He and the remarkable artist Tom Lichtenheld are back with their second Groovy Joe story called, 'Groovy Joe Dance Party Countdown'. This groovy story will have students singing, dancing, and learning math to a whole new beat. I must say that I LOVE that this book includes math!!

In this second book, Groovy Joe has a dance party. However, more and more doggies are knocking on his door, asking to come in. However, will there be enough room for everyone? Joe knows just what to do and, soon enough, he has everyone moving and grooving -- the party has only just begun! 

What I love about this story is that there is a very positive message about adapting when faced with adversity. Groovy Joe says, “There’s always room for one more,” providing a wonderfully timely conclusion about inclusivity and diversity.  
Included is Eric Litwin's signature rhyme, repetition, and musical writing style throughout the story while the illustrations really brings to life the practice of addition each time the dog dance party doubles. 

This new and unforgettable Groovy Joe story is all about positivity, creativity, math, and kindness. I have been incredibly fortunate to get this book in my hands which just came out TODAY and I can not be more excited to read it to my students! I just know they are going to fall in love with this book just like they have with ALL of Eric Litwin's books!

GUESS WHAT!?!?! Eric has graciously contacted me and wants to GIVEAWAY his new 'Groovy Joe Dance Party Countdown' book to one of you!!! He has created a very simple entry for you to win a signed copy of his newest book! Trust me, you will want this for your classroom!

  1. This is definitely one of the most fun books for kids. I have a great time reading to my son who's just begun school and absolutely loves it. I, and few parents from his school organized a small reading and fun activities in a great LA venue and it was just wonderful! This is a great Christmas gift for small children.
