for Bravo, Tanya by Patricia Lee Gauch, Satomi Ichikawa, and Miguel Angel Mendo
The star of Dance, Tanya (Philomel, 1989) still loves to dance and now she's old enough to attend ballet classes as a bonafide member. But she finds that dancing is hard work and, though she manages to keep up with the her classmates, she still prefers dancing outdoors to the music in her head. Ichikawa's softly colored illustrations capture the exuberance and enthusiasm of an energetic child who loves to dance. (Ages 4-7)
