Nana Hannah's Pianoby Barbara Bottner, Diana Cain Bluthenthal (Illustrator)
What's a first baseman to do when his mom makes him practice the piano after school instead of fielding grounders? Even his piano teacher says he's hopeless. His Nana Hannah says that Sonny should do whatever he likes--just like her. But when Nana Hannah twists her ankle while doing the tango at the Rhapsody Ballroom, Sonny decides she's the one who needs cheering up. Full color.
Sharing, caring, and a patch of common groundBottner (Hurricane Music, 1995, etc.) knows the ingredients, and fashions them into a minor ode to encouragement. Bluthenthal's brashly cartoonish illustrations are technically sophisticated, particularly nice in the swooping lines of Nana in tango mode.
