Gr 1–3—This historical fiction installment chronicles Alicia Alonso's story, from her love of dancing as a child to a
visual impairment that could have threatened her career. With grace and poise, Alicia overcomes every obstacle
sent her way. While ballet and dance lovers may especially enjoy Alicia's journey, the full-page illustrations and
inspiring tone will draw readers of all interests.

Another great chapter book from Rebel Girls! Text by Corinne Purtill.
Alicia was born in 1920 in an island nation in the Caribbean, went to regular school and took ballet lessons. She loved ballet and even went to study with a famous ballet! She became world famous for her skill. Then she became nearly blind! And still she went on tour. She determined to do it, and she did! She even founded the Cuban National Ballet and lived until 2019!
This fictionalized biography is quite realistic and encouraging to anyone facing difficulties in doing what matters to them.
The illustrations by Josefina Preumayr are simple, delightful, imaginative, and colorful.
Well suited for reading WITH someone of any age including ESL, and great for gifting to anyone, but especially to a school or your public library!
I requested and received a free temporary e-book on Adobe Digital Editions from Rebel Girls via NetGalley. Thank you!

nonfiction, biographical-novel, Japan, mountaineering, capable,*****

When she was in primary school she was bookish and not at all atheletic. Then a teacher encouraged her to try mountaineering. Obviously she came to love the challenge.
In 1992, she was the first woman to climb the Seven Summits, the highest peak on each continent – Kilimanjaro (1980), Mt. Aconcagua (1987), Denali (1988), Mt. Elbrus (1989), Mount Vinson (1991), and Puncak Jaya (1992). Tabei took part in 44 all-female mountaineering expeditions by 2005.
The illustrations by Montse Galbany are simple, delightful, imaginative, and colorful.
Well suited for reading WITH someone of any age including ESL, and great for gifting to anyone, but especially to a school or public library!
