My daughter just started to dance and I thought this would be a nice book. But is is a dictionary of dance not a story. Wish it was more writen like a story but... We like one of the authors other books, "My Forever Dress", great book if mom or grandma sews, your child will be able to relate. That book I would have given 5 stars.
