Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
As Tanya's older sister Elise practices ballet, Tanya performs pli`e's, arabesques, and jett`e's right alongside her, but Tanya is too little to take ballet lessons. After the whole family attends Elise's dance recital Tanya's mother puts on the music to "Swan Lake," and an inspired Tanya gives a recital all her own. Ichikawa's soft pictures capture Tanya's innocence and joy.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Tanya really loves to dance, and she copies all of the moves and does her own practicing with her big sister Elise. She even puts on a tutu and practices jetés and arabesques to the music of Swan Lake. Tanya has a wonderful time at her sister's big recital, but she falls asleep on her mother's lap, but once home, Tanya surprises everyone with her dance prowess. Soon she is taking dance lessons just like her big sister. A truly delightful story that should resonate with kids who have a desire to dance or accomplish something on their own. Ichikawa's illustrations capture the moves and moods of little Tanya and her caring family.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-- Tanya, a vivacious preschooler, is bitten by the ballet bug before she is old enough to take lessons. She helps her big sister, Elise, practice and hangs around to watch Elise's class go through their jetes and plies . Best of all, Tanya likes to create her own dances either alone or in a pas de deux with her teddy (a ballerina bear, naturally). She does a Swan Lake which is beyond Petipa's dreams. ``You have two dancers in your family,'' her grandmother tells her mother after a family recital. Her mother does not forget, and sees to it that Tanya starts ballet class as soon as she is old enough. This is a charming family story, showing strong and loving relationships all around. Tanya is an engaging little heroine who does not let her size undermine her determination to have her heart's desire. Ichikawa's illustrations are especially attractive, leaning heavily on muted colors with splashes of black, red, and brown. All this is placed in a pleasing format, creating a ballet story with wide appeal. --Kay McPherson, Central Atlanta-Fulton Public Library
