Storytime: Breaking to the Beat! by Linda J. Acevedo

It’s the Bronx in the 1970s, and new dance rhythms like Toprock, Drop of the Six-step, and Wiggle of the Worm are on the rise. For Manolo, a shy boy, this new dance style called breaking is motivation to overcome his insecurities. Linda J. Acevedo’s energetic debut picture book is an ode to the Hip Hop movement that permanently shifted the world of music and dance.
