(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) While Eric Litwin was a kindergarten teacher in Georgia, he noticed kids losing interest in reading and sawing the negative effects it made on their learning.

Litwin is now a New York Best Selling author with nine books currently under his belt. What makes his approach different is by getting the kids up and moving to music.  

"Singing and dancing your books helps you be engaged with your books and that really matters," Litwin said.
