All over the world-from New York City to Spain to Senegal-Lily learns new dances and makes wonderful friends.  But none of the dances are quite right for a cow, and soon Lily starts to miss home.  Will she ever find a place where she fits in?

Prancing, Dancing Lily is a pretty cute story. Both of the girls enjoyed it. I love that Lily got to travel and try out several types of dance. I love it because it allows kids to have a glimpse at different dance styles from over the world. I also loved the message of "Never Give Up" that this story gives. Just keep trying and you will find what is right for you. I think this is a fun and entertaining story. The illustrations are great! I think it is a great story to read with young children.
