Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
This story continues the tale of Tanya's love for dance begun in Dance, Tanya. Formal lessons mean concentrating, listening to the teacher's counting and the piano's music. Tanya misses beats and steps. But then she discovers the joy of moving to the sound of the wind or the rustling of the leaves or just to the sounds of music in her own head. Maybe she'll be a dancer after all. Ichikawa's watercolors create a perfect balletic accompaniment to this dancing story. Tanya is a charmer. 1996 (orig.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- Tanya is finally old enough to study ballet, yet despite all her natural coordination, enthusiasm, and even technical mastery, she finds the structure of classes difficult and frustrating. She can't even hear the music. ``She is a lovely child, and she is enjoying herself, and that is what matters'' says her teacher. But Tanya doesn't experience the same joy she feels while dancing with her stuffed bear under the trees, listening to the wind. It's the helpful reassurance and gentle encouragement of her kind accompanist that makes the difference and turns the little girl into a ballerina. Ichikawa's fluid watercolors with finely etched pen-and-ink detail capture the action. The same lumpish little girl who is always one jete behind in class is pure poetry in motion executing a pas de deux in the springtime meadow. Delicately expressive and infused with light, the illustrations and lilting prose are perfectly in step and gratifying. --Luann Toth, School Library Journal
