Synopsis by Alice Day
For a shy mouse, dancing can be a bit out of character, but when Sophie sees dancers in a window, she is determined to learn. After consulting some how-to books, she gets the confidence to try the steps. While dancing, she meets Lou and they become a team. This featured book in the Reading Rainbow series is Sophie and Lou, written by Petra Mather and read by Lola Falana. Host LeVar Burton also decides to learn the mambo and hip-hop, with help from professional dancers. Dances from other countries are shown, including Irish step dancing, aboriginal dances, and Bali's ritual dancing. Other books in the program include Dancing With the Indians, Cordelia, Dance!, and Lion Dancer.
