Bill Robinson: Rap A Tap Tap

Rap A Tap Tap

In my quest to branch out during Black History Month, I came across this short and sweet tribute to Bill Robinson: the legendary tap dancer better known as “Bojangles”. I love Leo & Diane Dillon’s simplistic illustrations and telling of Bill Robinson’s story.

My experience is that kids understand the book far better after seeing him dance. This is the clip I use.
