Read full description of the books Dancing the Dream:Dancing The Dream by Michael Jackson is the most divine, beatific collection of poetry that I have ever read. This book is perfect for reading to children because the poetry is caring, powerful and perennial. Some of my favourite poems are Planet Earth and Child Of Innocence.
Child Of Innocence speaks about the purity and exclusive nature of childhood. It really places emphasis on the significance of enjoying the blissfulness of youth, and the importance of letting children be children. This poem would be thoroughly enjoyed by EYFS as the words are very easy to understand, and it flows very poetically. It really touches your heart because the passion comes through in the words, and you feel as though the poem is speaking to you personally. It is extremely amiable, and I think this is important when getting children to try and write their own poetry; try and move people in some way, or get them to feel something. There are a number of poems to choose from, and each of them are equally positive about life and the world that we live in. I read a lovely review of this book which said, "Every single work is filled with the joy of life and is a true inspiration."
Another one of my favourite poems in this book is Planet Earth. Planet Earth speaks about the universe as a special place that is our home. One would assume that we all like to treat our home with care, and respect, and we should therefore adopt this attitude to the universe. Years and years from now we want humankind to be able to enjoy the beauties that we have enjoyed, here on earth. If we want this to happen then we need to start caring a little bit more about the world.
There is an ongoing theme of care and emotion and it really inspires anyone that has a heart. I remember when I read this collection of poetry that it really inspired me to write some poetry. If I can be inspired to try my hand at poetry, then I am sure many other young people could also be inspired. I have enclosed a poem that I wrote, which was truly inspired by Dancing The Dream and the elicitation that sometimes it is good to celebrate what is different, because ultimately, the world would be a boring place if we were all the same. It speaks about being a ‘misfit’ and my renunciation of any kind of animosity that one may experience for being different. The message is that ignorance tends to be manifested in those that lack knowledge, and if you have knowledge, then you have the upper hand to these shallow minded people.
Here is the poem I wrote:
Child Of Euphoria
Who is this child? People failed to understand him
Some thought him stupid, some thought him dim
There is a strange sparkle in his eye that catches your attention
Anyone who sees, will never fail to mention
He inspires and eats you whole
He wants your un-sheltered soul
This child is definitely peculiar, they said
Eventually the news began to spread
That when he rises and he glows
His inner strength gives him power
Defiant as a tower
His invincible mind conquers all
His hope will not fall
Don't try to steal his shine
For this is what makes him so divine
Think of him every day
For this is the only way
You can imitate the epitome of man
So do what you can
For he is the one we must obey
Don't let your mind sway
For you must radiate goodness and love
That special thing, lining the sky above
How can a pair of eyes be so innocent and pure?
They must be god sent for sure
If you don't care for him, he cares not for you
For he cuts, bruises, and bleeds too
Remember him in everything you see
For he is all you want to be
Look at him and stare
It makes your soul bare
Unless you absorb his passion
But do this with compassion
For he was not always this strong
His life was once all wrong
So don't rain on his parade
Instead let your sadness fade
Open up your mind
And look what you find
Something new and exclusive
Make your physical self allusive
United we stand, united we fall
The Magical child is inside us all
He rattles and bangs to break free
Like a desperate plea
So release the child now
Don't raise a brow
Listen to what he has to say
Don't let your mind go astray
Mysterious, enchanting, and magical is thee
And who is he?
He is everyone that wants to embody their spirit
For this is something we all inherit
But for some of us it gets lost
And our morality tossed
Look at his gaze
It never fails to amaze
He is truly heaven sent
Now is the time for us to repent
Find your inner child's heart
And from it, never depart
For it will immortalise your youth
This is the eternal truth
Spoken for the wise ears only
The happy, sad, and lonely

The seventh child of the Jackson family, Michael Jackson debuted on the professional music scene at the age of eleven as a member of the Jackson 5, and went on to become a pop icon as a solo artist. His successful career and controversial, enigmatic personal life have been a part of pop culture for almost four decades. Jackson has dominated pop music since the late 1970s, becoming the first black entertainer to amass a strong cross-over following on MTV with his revolutionary transformation of the music video as an art form and as a promotional tool. The popularity of videos aired on MTV such as "Beat It" and "Billie Jean" created a tremendous synergy that helped to put the relatively young channel "on the map" and Jackson continued to be a dominant figure on MTV with videos such as "Black or White" and "Scream". Jackson also popularized physically-complicated dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk, that have redefined mainstream dance and entertainment. His distinctive style, dance moves, and vocals have influenced a whole generation of hip hop, pop, and R&B artists.
He has been cited as the "Most Successful Entertainer of All Time" by Guinness World Records, and holds the record for the best-selling album ever, Thriller, among 7 more guinness world records.
Michael Jackson has received thirteen Grammy Awards (eight on a single night in 1984) and two of his solo albums have been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Jackson has charted thirteen #1 singles in the United States, more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era. In November 2006, the World Music Awards announced that Jackson had sold over 750 million units worldwide and given $300 million to charity, making Jackson one of the best-selling music artists and one of the most philanthropic performers of the 20th and 21st century. However, Jackson's controversial appearance and actions have damaged his reputation in the eyes of some of the public and album sales have been in decline since the mid 1990s.
From 1988 to 2005, Jackson lived on his Neverland Ranch property, where he built an amusement park and private zoo that was frequently attended by disadvantaged and terminally ill children. Rumors of sleepover parties received both negative media coverage and public attention after it was revealed that children had slept in his bed or bedroom. This first came to light when he was accused of child sexual abuse in 1993. Michael Jackson's relationship with children was brought into the spotlight again in 2003 when the TV documentary Living with Michael Jackson was broadcast. This resulted in Jackson being tried, and later acquitted, of more child molestation allegations and several other charges in 2005. After this, Jackson went on hiatus, traveling to countries such as Bahrain, before starting work on new material in Ireland. In early 2008, he released Thriller 25 (a special edition of the "Thriller" album), which was a commercial success selling nearly 1.5 million copies worldwide in seven weeks.
