    1. I almost didn't know anything about Maria Tallchief before I read this book.I did know that she was a aboriginal ballet dancer and that she was famous.Some of the things I learned:1. Her father was from the Osage tribe.2. Her mother was from Scotland.3. When she was was little, her mother said she could choose between piano and dance. She chose dance.4. She started out with a woman teacher who was very strict.5. The woman teacher taught Maria and her sister how to dance on tip-toes.6. Later, she [...]



    2. I found this through my library's website and before reading this, I had never heard of Maria Tallchief. She was the first American Prima Ballerina. Maria was born on the Osage Reservation in Oklahoma to a fullblood Osage father and a Scot-Irish mother. Maria fell in love with dance at a young when she attended her first Powwow. Maria and her sister began their dancing careers by performing at county fairs and rodeos. Through hard work and determination, Maria made her dream come true of being a [...]


    3. Great illustrations, approachable format, and interestingly written. I am really considering finding a class set of these books for my students. The only issue is that the caricatures on the covers are a little disconcerting; I was turned off by the stretched quality of my faces, and I think a couple of my students said the same. The art's good, honestly (and the rest of the illustrations have normally-proportioned figures), but something about that cover caricature unnerves me. Alas, I unfairly [...]


    4. What is perfection? Nature is perfection. We can only be a almost perfection.That is what Maria has achieved and that is a lot.Reading about an unfamiliar field of art is what this series about. Open your eyes and open your mind.


    5. Great children's book which detailed Maria Tallchief's career as a prima ballerina. Her father was a full blooded Osage Indian and she married George Balanchine who wrote ballets for her.



    6. I really liked how Maria followed her dreams. Only one thing I didn't like, and it was unchangangable. SO MUCH DEATH!!!!!


    7. Kaisa read this for a school paper so I decided to read it too. Always fun to learn about famous people in history and this was no different. :)


    8. I am really embarrassed to admit that I had NEVER heard of Maria Tall Chief until I picked up this book in my daughter's elementary school library. Regardless of what that says about the holes in what I learned as a kid, I'm happy to be reading this book to my kids at night during reading time. It is the second in the "who was / who is" series of kids' biography books that I've read with them. I am enjoying them so much (and still learning things!) - that I'm going to have to commit to conquerin [...]

    10. Biography book number 5- Born in 1925, Maria Tallchief spent part of her childhood on an Osage reservation in Oklahoma. With the support of her family and world-renowned choreographer George Balanchine, she rose to the top of her art form to become America's first prima ballerina. Black-and-white illustrations provide visual sidebars to the history of ballet while taking readers through the life of this amazing dancer. For me Native American history is always interesting so I really liked this b [...]


    11. Maria Tallchief was the first American to dance at the Paris Opera House, she was America's first prima ballerina. Maria was born on the Osage Indian Reservation in Oklahoma, she learned to love dancing when her father and grandmother first took her to a powwow as a young girl. Her dancing brought honor to her people through her whole life. Lily likes that Maria was determined, she was afraid to go on stage but did it anyway, she never complained. Lily liked that Maria could spin on her tippy to [...]


    12. 1. who is? 2. 12/16 100min3. dance, start, ballet lesson, Chopin Concerto, soloist, married, honors4. A native American girl who fell in love with dance while attending her first powwowI like ” fell in love with dance". This sentence descrive how she absorb in dance.5. I have never hear Maria Tallchief. She is the best famous ballet in the world. She had danced with Swan Lake and Nutcracker which I know.


    13. I think that the who was books are interesting non-fiction books. Maria Tallchief was a ballerina. She was Americas first prima ballerina. She preformed as a swan queen, a sugar plum fairy, and a magical firebird. She was Native American and she was the daughter of a full-blood Osage. She was born in Oklahoma. She likes the rhythm of drums and she is also a fan of music.


    14. I read this when my daughter had it checked out. I enjoy this book series, and love how connections can be made that are just right for elementary age students. Maria Tallchief was one of my childhood heroes, so I enjoyed this!


    15. I learned about dedication from Maria Tallchief. She entered a career in which people like her were not ever going to be the best so instead of just settling for second place, she worked harder. She just passed away this April.


    16. The first book I actually read in the who was series does a good job taking the reader through Maria's life and explaining ballet terms along the way. Good chapter book biography for 2nd-4th graders.





    17. Very interesting story, but I felt like it could've been a little more in-depth compared to the other books in this series.
