From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Anna and her little sister, Katya, love to dance together and pretend to be ballerinas. At the age of five, the younger child contracts polio and becomes disabled. She wonders if she will ever be able to dance again. Anna is hopeful, but, despite treatment, her sister remains unable even to walk without the aid of braces. She buys some dainty white gloves and sews pink ribbons on them to make ballerina gloves, and Katya is able to dance with her arms, which strengthens her spirit. The delicate watercolor illustrations are marred by inconsistencies in the drawings of the characters. Personal notes from both the author and illustrator tell how polio affected their families. An explanation of the disease, including details of President Roosevelts affliction, is helpful. A sincere, nostalgic effort.–Debbie Stewart Hoskins, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI
