A while ago I got asked to review a children’s book called Carla and Leo’s World of Dance. The book was written by former model, and friend of Jessica Alba, Agatha Relota. Jessica Alba actually wrote the foreword of the book.
So like the diligent US Weekly reader that I am – I thought “Well if it’s good enough for Jessica to read to Honor – than it’s good enough for me!” (except I have two boys.)
Carla and Leo essentially go on a dance adventure, and the book highlights each different type of dance that they do. Their journey covers ten styles: the waltz, foxtrot, swing, merengue, mambo, cha-cha, rumba, salsa, tango, and samba. The book is gorgeously illustrated with 50 illustrations by fashion illustrator Thierry Perez.
The girly fashionista in me loved it – and I could picture myself as a young girl sitting in my room looking at all the pictures. Just looking at the different outfits alone could mesmerize me for hours.
This is a great book for tweens – especially ones that like to dance!
The best way I could describe it is a “Dancing with the Stars” book for kids. So if you love Dancing with Stars then you will love this book.
If you are a part of the society that only watches Dancing with Stars to stare at the human being currently known as Chaz, then maybe this book isn’t for you.
I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.
Now -the book review ends here…. if you are one of those people who is only watching Dancing with the Stars to stare at Chaz – then read on……..
I am a big fan of the gays – I love a good drag queen – I rooted for the transgender Isis on America’s Next Top Model……
My attitude is pretty much to each
his her his their own…..
But there is one thing I am pretty dead set on…..and that’s looks.
For example if you want to be a drag queen – you need to work it….it takes time and energy and dedication to be fabulous….
If you want to be a Chaz – son of Sonny and Cher!!! you need to look a little bit presentable…….
Why in the hell would you chop off your boobs and inject yourself with testosterone and (P.S. – upset Cher) – only to gain 500 lbs and grow a set of man boobs the size of Texas?
I mean – everyone is entitled to do what they want with their own bodies – but I am just saying that if for example I were to change my name to Sir Gaga, and try to grow a penis – I would work really hard to look like this:
I don’t want to be really mean – but this week people were quite upset that Chaz got to stay and dance only really because of who he/she is…..
And Chaz really – all you do is roll around in Cher’s money and jewels – which might be part of the problem….
Maybe if you had a job or a hobby – you wouldn’t have so much time to think about different ways to distort your anatomy.
I mean if I had no reason to wake up in the morning and no job or purpose – maybe I would stare out the window and one day say
“Hey – I know what….I’ll grow a penis!!”
Supposedly – top-secret informants found Chastity Bono’s to-do list a few years ago – which might explain how Chaz came to be …..I mean it must have been tough being Chastity Bono….
Here’s the alleged to-do list they found:
And so Chaz was born. Alright – “It” is what “It” is – but for god sake’s get your shit together – you didn’t do all this so you could be a grotesque blob of humanity!!
And at the end of the day……….Cher is your mother…….have some pride dude.
Don’t hate me for blowing up Chaz’s spot – it’s called tough love!!! Please click on the banner below to vote for me as one of the funniest mom bloggers in the world!!!
