It’s May Day! In Martin & Sylvia’s town, the community celebrates with a May Day Fair, complete with music and a Maypole. The family can’t wait to don their woven flower crowns and visit all the booths at the fair. But Martin can think of nothing but the Maypole … and how he wants to join the “fast dance” this year. It takes courage and a little story magic for Martin to take a ribbon and join the big kids in the twisting, turning dance.
