Emma and her grandpa, Pop, are tap-dancing pals. They dig-shuffle-chug through town and put on a c lickity-clacking, tip-tapping show every year on Emma's birthday. But Pop is getting old. He starts forgetting things, even Emma's birthday. And he stops dancing. Can Emma help Pop's feet remember how to dance? Clickity-clack, clickity-clack, stomp-stomp-clickity-clack. . . . Endearing illustrations rendered in gouache and pencils show that even the smallest act may spark a memory in an Alzheimer's sufferer.

About the author (2010)

Sarah Lynn's three young sons taught her how to race toy cars. Together they've used their imaginations to create roads everywhere (couch, kitchen floor, dirt, sand, rug, and the bathtub, just for starters.) The idea for 1-2-3 Va-Va-Vroom! came to Sarah when she was teaching her oldest son to write numbers. They began imagining the pencil as a car drawing its own track. Those vroom-vroom sounds made writing numbers so much more fun. Sarah is also the author of Tip-Tap Pop, illustrated by Valeria Docampo. She lives with her family in Camarillo, California.
