Dance Is For Everyone

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.

"In this sweet, humorous story about acceptance, Mrs. Iraina and the class display common sense, quick thinking, and good humor....The class, three girls and a boy, delight in dressing as a duck, a turtle, a frog, and a raccoon for their production of an original ballet, The Legend of the Swamp Queen. The alligator disappears as suddenly as she arrived, but weeks later a special map is delivered, with an invitation for the class to attend a dance performance put on actual duck, turtle, frog, raccoon, and a whole alligator family! Bright cartoon-style illustrations, detailed with black outlines and complete with comically expressive faces and gestures, perfectly suit the humorous premise.” — Booklist
