"As a little girl, Teresa Carreño loved to let her hands dance across the beautiful keys of the piano. If she felt sad, music cheered her up, and when she was happy, the piano helped her share that joy. Soon she was writing her own songs and performing in grand cathedrals. Then a revolution in Venezuela forced her family to flee to the United States. Teresa felt lonely in this unfamiliar place, where few of the people she met spoke Spanish. Worst of all, there was fighting in her new home, too--the Civil War. Still, Teresa kept playing, and soon she grew famous as the talented Piano Girl who could play anything from a folk song to a sonata. So famous, in fact, that President Abraham Lincoln wanted her to play at the White House! Yet with the country torn apart by war, could Teresa's music bring comfort to those who needed it most?"--… (mais)

Dancing Hands: How Teresa Carreno Played the Piano for President Lincoln by Margarita Engle and Illustrated by Rafael Lopez was published in 2019. This beautiful picture book won the Pura Belpre Illustrator Medal in 2020. This picture book is the story of Teresa Carreno and her love of music. A musical prodigy she, and her family, were forced to leave their home in Venezuela during a revolution. Now in the United States, where few speak her language, she seeks solace in her music but again faces war, the US Civil War. She is lonely and feels like an outcast but begins to become famous for her music. She is ultimately invited to the White House to play for President Abraham Lincoln. I love the illustrations in this book. The story is one of immigration and the challenge a young girl faces.

This book tells the story of a young Venezuelan piano player Maria Teresa Carreno Garcia de Sena. Maria loved to play piano, the story tells of how her piano playing helped her feel connected to others once she moved to New York 1862. She becomes a great piano player by the age of ten and she travels around playing piano. Eventually, she gets asked to play the piano for President Lincoln in the White House The book has very vibrant, realistic pictures that compliment the story well. I enjoyed this book, it contains a hopeful message of how music can help us feel connected to one another ( )

This would be a good book for intermediate students. This book tells the story of Teresa Carreno, as she found her love for playing the piano when she was a little girl. War came to her country and she fled as a refugee to the United States, war has a grasp here as well as she struggled to find her passion for playing amidst the ongoing Civil War. Carreno became known as the Piano Girl, and went on to perform for President Lincoln at The White House, where she brought peace to a family that had just mourned the loss of their son. This book was very helpful because it tells the true story of a talented girl, who used her skills to bring happiness into the live of others. I would use this book in a read-aloud when we were having a music lesson, because it shows how powerful music can be.

Primary-Int. This is a biographical tale of piano prodigy, Teresa Carreno, whose family fled Venezuela to escape war only to arrive in the U.S. in the midst of the Civil War. Word of her piano talents spread, even to the White House. This book is wonderful to use in a multitude of lessons, music, history, or Civil War history.

This book is suitable for primary aged students. It is about a young girl Teresa who uses music as a way to bring comfort and joy to those around her. She was asked to play piano for President Abraham Lincoln, at the time of war. This book conveys the power and beauty of music. It shows how music can bring unity and hope to the darkest times, even war. I would include this picture book in my classrooms library. I think the message of music that it conveys is important for students to read and relate to. I would include it for those students who need help finding hope in dark times or for students who are lovers of music. ( )
