" . . . a sweet, funny celebration of inclusiveness and dedication to dance.” —Horn Book
An alligator dancing ballet? When the reptile takes her place at the barre, Mrs. Iraina and her dancers are very surprised. But since they can’t communicate with the alligator—and she is able to follow along—they just decide to name her Tanya and let her stay. (Would YOU say no to a 450-pound alligator?) Mrs. Iraina even creates a special ballet to showcase Tanya’s larger-than-life talents . . . and super-swishy tail. Then, without warning, Tanya disappears. Funny and irreverent, Dance Is for Everyone shows that, with just a little understanding, anyone can fit in—even a dancing alligator.
"The illustrations are stylized and quirky, and the plot is engaging, with jokes that adults will appreciate peppered throughout. The narrative conveys the story’s message of inclusion in a subtle manner, but the book’s title makes this important theme abundantly clear. VERDICT A fun read-aloud and a welcome addition to medium and large collections, best shared one-on-one or in a small group setting.” —School Library Journal
“When Mrs. Iraina’s ballet class gets an unexpected newcomer—an alligator—the diverse cast of students are surprised but decide to welcome her. They begin to affectionately refer to her as Tanya, after a famous ballerina, but her large tail quickly becomes a problem during practice. Together the students come up with a brand-new dance that showcases Tanya and her wild tail. The dance is a huge success at the recital, and Tanya happily returns to the wild, where she continues to dance with her animal friends. The illustrations are stylized and quirky, and the plot is engaging, with jokes that adults will appreciate peppered throughout. The narrative conveys the story’s message of inclusion in a subtle manner, but the book’s title makes this important theme abundantly clear. VERDICT A fun read-aloud and a welcome addition to medium and large collections, best shared one-on-one or in a small group setting.” —School Library Journal
“Enthusiastic new student Tanya--who happens to be an alligator—joins Mrs. Iraina's ballet class. After her show-stopping debut in the original ballet The Legend of the Swamp Queen, Tanya invites her classmates to a special encore performance. Spare text and illustrations starring a surprisingly endearing alligator make for a sweet, funny celebration of inclusiveness and dedication to dance.” —Horn Book
