Harriet Dancing – Ruth Symes

Harriet Dancing caught my eye the other day as we searching for new books at the library.  Harriet the Hedgehog has a happy heart and is enjoying a beautiful spring morning.  She is having a delightful time dancing in the sunshine along with some butterflies.  Soon the butterflies stop dancing.  When Harriet inquires why they all stopped, she is told that butterflies only dance with butterflies.  Feeling very, very sad, Harriet runs away crying.  Before long, with the help of her friend Ivor, Harriet discovers that she can have fun dancing on her own as well as with her friends.  Soon the butterflies return and ask if they can dance with the group too.  In the end, everyone is dancing and having fun.

The pictures in this book are beautiful and really enhance an already charming story.
