Part of the Luna Loves... Series

Luna Loves Dance Synopsis

Discover the joy of dancing and the importance of family, whatever your culture, ability or style with Luna!

When Luna dances, she feels like the world's volume turns up, like all colours brighten, like sunlight sparkles behind every cloud. But when she takes her dance exam she ducks, dives, spins and... falls. Luna thinks she can't be a real dancer now. Can Luna's family convince her otherwise?

Luna Loves Dance Press Reviews

Luna Loves Art offers [the comfort that] not all families look the same - and that is a great message to celebrate. Laura Dockrill

Luna Loves Library Day is a touching reflection on the power of reading to bring families together; Fiona Lumbers' illustrations convey Luna's vivid inner life, while Coelho's lyrical style celebrates the joyful curiosity of early childhood. Amnesty International
