Dance for Me

Author(s): Dot Meharry

New Zealand titles - children

Emma?s grandmother makes her a special dancing dress out of all the fabrics that she has kept in her old trunk. The fabrics tell stories of wedding days, births, concerts and parties and the stories that they weave have a special place in Emma?s family. Then her grandfather dies and Emma?s grandmother can see no way to recapture the magic in her life. It?s up to Emma, now a mother herself, to help. A beautiful story about the special bond between a young girl and her grandparents and how life?s changes can be positive. Dot Meharry was born in Taumarunui and spent her school years on the family sheep farm. After spending some time teaching in the country, she taught in London, before returning to New Zealand to marry and raise a family. She lives with her husband Jack in Thames, on the Coromandel Peninsula, where she has taught for many years. Dot has written books which are used to teach reading in New Zealand, Australia and America, and she finds this particularly satisfying. Today she and Jack job share a teaching role, which allows Dot time to write, relax at the beach and to spend time with their grandchildren.
