We are proud to provide our authors with unprecedented editorial excellence, marketing reach, long-standing connections with booksellers, and insight into reader and consumer behavior. Consistently at the forefront of innovation and technological advancement, HarperCollins also uses digital technology to create unique reading experiences and expand the reach of our authors.

HarperCollins was founded by brothers James and John Harper in New York City in 1817 as J. and J. Harper, later Harper & Brothers. In 1987, as Harper & Row, it was acquired by News Corporation. The worldwide book group was formed following News Corporation's 1990 acquisition of the British publisher William Collins & Sons. Founded in 1819, William Collins & Sons published a range of Bibles, atlases, dictionaries, and reissued classics, expanding over the years to include legendary authors such as H. G. Wells, Agatha Christie, J. R. R. Tolkien, and C. S. Lewis.

The house of Mark Twain, the Brontë sisters, Thackeray, Dickens, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Maurice Sendak, Shel Silverstein, and Margaret Wise Brown, HarperCollins has a long and rich history that reaches back to the early nineteenth century and offers our publishing team a depth of experience.

Product description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-While Mama is napping on the sofa, Father comforts his baby daughter and soon they are dancing and singing their way through this action poem. The little girl's hair ribbons gleefully soar as she goes "Up to the ceiling,/down to the ground/Backward, forward,/'round and 'round." Van Heerden's soft-focus artwork is animated and realistic. The red, orange, and yellow background hues radiate with the warmth of this African-American family, and the simple, catchy rhyme invites parent/child participation. A great addition to board-book collections.

From Kirkus Reviews

This abbreviated version of Taylor's poem,``The Baby Dance,'' drawing upon infants' universal love of song, weaves a few bouncing lines to make listeners wriggle. An African-American father croons to his baby daughter while engaging in a spontaneous and steadily more exuberant dance. ``Dance, little baby,/move to and fro/Coo and crow, baby,/there you go.'' Van Heerden's judicious use of background colors subtly reflect the increasing tempo, as soothing blues gradually intensify into vibrant swirls of orange, yellow, and purple. A boisterous romp. (Board book. 1-3) -- Copyright ©1998, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
