App of the Week: Prancing, Dancing Lily
Based on the award-winning book by Marsha Diane Arnold, Prancing, Dancing Lily tells the story of a festive young milking cow that doesn’t quite fit the herd. Brought to the digital world by Fat Red Couch, this heartwarming tale features whimsical illustrations, expressive characters and unique narration that readers of all ages will appreciate.
Lily, the leading lady, comes from a long line of responsible cow-bellers; yet she herself is clumsy, inattentive and always dancing around the field at the wrong times. Once she realizes she’s different from her peers, Lily embarks on an adventure, traveling the world in search of the perfect dance. Thanks to her spunky nature, she has the opportunity to grace Radio City Music Hall as a Rockette, learns to tap dance on a cruise ship, and pirouettes on stage as a ballerina in Russia. Through her adventures, Lily learns an important lesson on self acceptance, and returns home to share her exciting new dances with the friends on the farm.
