Great book for dancing girls!
I live in Texas and my grandkids are in Minnesota. I send them a book every month. My granddaughter LOVES to dance and LOVES this book. It's such a cute story and the illustrations are so well done.

A Fabulous Follow-Up
This is the second book in the series, I would recommend reading "Every Cowgirl Needs a Horse" first. However, this book can be read on its own and has the same high quality illustrations and story as the original. This time, Nellie Sue, wants to have a place to use her new dancing boots so she decides to have a barn dance in her garage. She wants to invite the new girls across the street but they are "Glitter Girls" as she calls them - the girlie-ballet-lessons kind of girls. This book is about how she makes friends with one of the girls who is her age, but the obstacle is that she has to relate to someone who seems very different from her. Nellie Sue talks like a Cowgirl and I just love the dialog. My favorite line is when she is having some failed attempts at making friends and she says, "I wish I could have given up, but I'm a Cowgirl, and we have a code of ethics." Like the first book, this one is a perfect blend of warm and funny, with a good lesson to be learned and beautiful illustrations to enhance the story. I highly recommend it!Was this review helpful?
