Sarah’s Solo by Tracy Brown
Paula Wegman (Illustrator)
Sarah is disappointed when she must miss dancing her solo at the upcoming ballet recital to go to her cousin’s wedding.
But as she explores some of the Jewish customs at the wedding, she begins to realize how much her own culture’s traditions have to offer.
Although not the delicate melodies of classical music and elegant movements of ballet, the hypnotic rhythms of the klezmer band and the energetic steps of the hora still transport her—and the reader—to another world.
