Adora and Adrianna Svitak believe that age should not be a limiting factor when it comes to expressing creativity and imagination through writing and music. Since the publication of her first book, Flying Fingers: Master the Tools of Learning Through the Joy of Writing, when she was seven, Adora has been drumming up excitement about reading and writing. She has taught writing workshops to schoolchildren on three continents and made headlines fundraising for educational supplies in Vietnam. Adora still believes that the best way to get kids interested in reading and writing is to provide them with fun stuff to read and show them ideas they can try for themselves. To that end, Adora and Adrianna teamed up to create a collection of poems and poetry writing ideas for the entire class or family. With this book they hope to encourage other kids to explore their own writing potential. In order to share the sources of her inspiration, Adora's poems are divided into six sections. She introduces each section with an essay on one of her favorite sources of poetry inspiration and shares practical and inspirational writing tips. The writing ideas from each section appear in bold. Definitions of more advanced vocabulary words are included at the bottom of each page. A seventh section introduces a more modern style of poetry in the form of Adrianna's poems, which she wrote between the ages of eight and eleven. Adrianna is an award-winning pianist and violinist who dedicates much of her time to music. Diverse in style and content, Dancing Fingers speaks to readers of all ages. It is intended as a classroom resource, a teaching aid, a source of family entertainment, a conversation piece, and a vehicle for thoughts.
