This book/CD is an excellent gift book for a graduate, a son, daughter or friend needing a nod or word of encouragement. I have purchased 6 of these (so far!) over the years. Mark Sanders & Tia Sellers wrote the words to the song, & the book is basically the words with beautiful photographs, along with the CD tucked in. I didn't know the songwriters, though their credentials are impressive, but know the song very well, having heard it many times by the wonderful Lee Ann Womack (who performs it here). The words are so poignant, basically saying, "Carpe Diem- Seize the Day".

Just used it for a Service for the Family of a Deceased friend Tried to play the CD before the ceremony (CD player didn't work) so I read the words before the service began and after I finished the ceremony. Sine the person, being remembered, was a Dancer & in a Collage, was remembered as a Dancer
the people enjoyed the Memorial Ceremony.

This is a sweet rendition from a favorite song of mine. The song is something I wanted to tell all my children...it just fit as something a parent would like to pass on to those they love the most. The book does have a little bit of conflict as to what age it should be given to. But, of course, the song is geared to an older person...teen and up, so having the book for a younger age group made it a little difficult to really address either age group perfectly. But, this Christmas, I bought the older age group version for all the older females on my list and was happy to find this younger child's version for some of the younger ones. Both books has the CD single "I Hope You Dance". I would recommend it for kids maybe 8 to 12.

Wrong book sent (boy not girl) but the book is a wonderful gift for encouragement..One of the best out there. I stocked up on them when they first came out but ran out and had to order another one since my niece was getting a divorce. I give them so a person has something to hold on to.

I've always loved the song "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack, so when I saw this book on Amazon, I just had to order it for my 2 year old son. I have been collecting items for his "keepsake" box, something that I will give to him someday when he starts a family of his own, and it will be full of treasures from his newborn days through his high school years.

This book by Mark D. Sanders and Tia Sillers includes a CD of the song by Ms. Womack, as well as a foreward by her. The book has the song lyrics sprinkled throughout, complemented nicely by inspirational passages.

I recommend this book for any parents or parents-to-be who want to offer their child (of any age) something loving and inspirational to turn to through the years.

I love this book!! I gave it to my two sons about 12 years ago. I told my friend about it and she wanted one for her son and I purchased it for her. I have given this book to a dear friend two years ago. She was my secretary ten years ago and is now in her seventies. This book is not just for chldren but also for adults that are young at heart. I believe it has a message for you regardless of your age. I plan to give this book to my grandchildren as they reach the age that they can appreciate the message and dance in their heart even if they cannot dance physically.

Being a lover of this song and of gift books, I naturally couldn't resist ordering this book the minute I saw it in a store. The lyrics of Leann Womack's classic song is featured throughout the book, along with inspirational messages and beautiful photography from those who put the book together.

I did dock a star because the messages in the book that accompanied the song occasionally came off as a little too..mushy. I'm really not that harsh a critic, not of books like these, but the beautiful words of inspiration were, a couple of times, replaced by words that were definitely too syrupy for my taste. I prefer truly moving messages and stories to speak for themselves, but it occassionally seemed like the authors wanted to hammer the point home, overdo the sentimentality, and even make their message serious and cheerfully bouncy at the exact same time (trust me, that doesn't work). For ex: throughout the book, the lyrics of the song are printed in large bold letters in order to differentiate them from the authors' separate words of inspiration. Usually, the pages featuring the lyrics had no other words on them, but at one point, right above the words of Womack's moving song, the authors' placed a bulletin that said, "Attention! This is BIG stuff!" Considering the fact that Leann's song more than speaks for itself and doesn't need any extra emotional boosting, I found those additional words annoying and almost jarring to the flow of the song and its message.

Elsewhere in the book, as I mentioned before, the sentimentality goes into overdrive. One page is dedicated entirely to love and begins with the words, "Love, love, love. You have to love." Yick, yick. It's nice to compliment the song with additional words of motivation, but we don't need an interpretive page with every selection of the song. In another part of the book, while speaking of youth, the narrator says, "Ah, youth..new skin, wide smiles, clear eyes..the future so bright. If only we could bottle it up, sip it now and again.." This sounded more to me like a bad commercial for a fountain of youth than a motivational speech. I don't mean to sound cynical, I usually love gift books, but the tone in this one was sometimes just too sweet for my taste.

I also didn't particularly care for the version of the song in the bonus CD. There's a mainstream version with soft rock music and female voices in the background (which I prefer) and there's a country version with male voices in the background and the occassional awful twangy instruments; this one's the latter. If you like country music, good for you, but I don't like the country version of this song.

There are plenty of good points of this book to make up for the disappointments, of course. The song is wonderful, whether you hear it or read it, and some of the separate words in the book were lovely to read. My favorite part of the book's text, other than the song, was a beautiful little haiku that the authors wrote called "You", celebrating every individual. The photographs are also gorgeous, from grinning children to nature scenery. A beautiful package, altogether.

Now, if they'd only make a gift book celebrating the beautiful song "Private Malone"..
This is such a great book and song to give as a gift for graduation, birthdays, etc. I gave it to my niece and I love the song and the message of the book!
