A charming children’s book about the return of traditional dancing to one Yup’ik village, Lucy’s Dance tells the story of a little girl who is determined to help her grandfather demonstrate for the people of the town the beauty and complexity of old-style dancing. Threaded through the story are accounts of Yup’ik arts such as drumming, singing, and storytelling through dance, all brought to life with beautiful, full-color illustrations.
Juneau Empire
Lucy’s Dance presents the idea of dramatic cultural change through the personal perspective of a young girl, and conveys the hopeful idea that the work of only one individual in a community can make all the difference.”
Midwest Book Review

"With beautiful artwork from Nancy E. Slagle, Lucy's Dance is a charming read of family, tradition, and the power of them combined to create something truly special."—Midwest Book Review
