When the Elephants Dance is a historical fiction novel written by Tess Uriza Holthe and published in 2002

When the Elephants Dance is a historical fiction novel written by Tess Uriza Holthe and published in 2002. It is set in February, 1945 in the Philippines during the final week of the battle for control between the Americans and the Japanese during World War II. The story is divided into four parts, each told from a character's perspective and detailing events that occur in the moments leading up to the Japanese surrender.

Ravi and Anjali are fascinated by their grandfather s stories of India, where the sun is like a ferocious tiger, the wind is like a wild horse, and monsoon rains cascade from the sky like waterfalls. Ravi particularly loves to hear about the festival of Divaali, where parading elephants take pride of place in their grandfather s memories, and he dreams of having an elephant dance to the tune he composes on his flute.In addition to an evocative, beautifully written story, Elephant Dance also contains endnotes on the cultural heritage of India, making it a perfect introduction to Indian life and traditions.
I was really looking forward to enjoying this book with my young daughter, but I was highly disappointed. At the beginning of the book, a brother, sister, & grandfather are introduced. However, the book focuses mostly on the boy & grandfather. Although the girl could have easily been included much more, she seems like a non-entity. The grandfather brings gifts for the children--bangles for the girl & a kite for the boy. An active fun toy for the boy & jewelry for the girl simply reinforce & perpetuate gender stereotyping. Even worse, the girl is both subtly & blatantly excluded in most of the book--only the boy goes out with the grandfather to fly the kite, most of the questions are asked by the boy, & most of the tales are told just to the boy. In a world & country where girls & women are already marginalized, excluded, ignored, & much, much worse, these are irresponsible, influential, & disempowering messages to send to children.

I was looking for a book that would teach our daughter (& nephew) about Indian culture & celebrate diversity; instead this was disappointing, disempowering, exclusionary, & sexist.

This book has many beautiful illustrations. (However, many of the characters have very odd disconcerting dark circles around their eyes.)

I was also very disappointed that Barefoot Books decided to publish this book. Previous Barefoot Books we've bought & videos we've viewed have been wonderfully inclusive & celebratory of diversity. This book reinforces & perpetuates gender stereotypes & exclusion. Barefoot Books, please be more conscientious about which books you publish in the future. We as parents want to be able to trust that you will live up to your commitment to diversity & inclusion, not contribute to & worsen the very messages & injustices we are trying to fight & counteract.

Such a cute book.
This is a gift for someone just getting back from an India trip
I used this book to introduce my 3rd grade art class to India and Indian culture. It could be used for younger children, but it does a good job of giving the basic flavor of India to the reader. It's very quick and simple, and the illustrations are playful and fun.
Hilarious Kangaroo
I teach 6th grade ELA and World Geography. I initially intended to use this book because of the author's rich use of similes but after reading it I fell in love with it's tidbits of information about India. I teach a big unit on India in my geography class and this book helped introduce my students to many of the words and vocabulary that they learn during the unit. The pictures are also beautiful.
Great multicultural book for kids.
My three-year-old daughter loves this book. Highly recommend.
Used as an intro to an art lesson. Good book. I can't believe they require a minimum amount of words. Crazy. They want an opinion and then ask for so many words. What are they nuts!
