Star Dance (1964) for Yuri's Night 2015
Happy Yuri's Night to all! If you are not familiar with this celebration, the first human to launch into space, Yuri Gagarin, flew the Vostok 1 spaceship on April 12, 1961.
So for this special celebration I recommend DANCING!!!
This is not a children's book but rather a document showing how Yuri's achievement was celebrated. It seems to be from a book of music and choreography that the seller called Star Dance. One of the dances in the book is celebrating how a cosmonaut visited the heavens, dancing with the stars and moon.
Star Dance. Moscow. 1964. 20.4 x 25.8 cm (8" x 10.2") 128 pages + 24 pages of photos.
In the introduction to this section you can see the dedication to/inspiration from Yuri's flight.
