Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 4 to 9.

This how-to book about ballet includes precise illustrations with simple and brief descriptions of the beginning essentials of the dance. The illustrations first show bunnies (with arms and legs) at the studio getting ready for their ballet class. Every piece of their outfits is labeled next to the picture. Warm-up exercises are next, followed by ballet positions. Then more advanced ballet positions (for bigger bunnies) are shown and explained in detail. The bunnies do ballet exercises with the official names such as tendu and arabesque at the barre before they go on to "hop, skip, twirl, and wiggle." Big leaps are followed by a curtsy or bow to thank the teacher and end the dance. A glossary gives brief definitions of these words and additional terms. This book is a visually sweet presentation of information that should interest young readers and dancers. Reviewer: Vicki Foote

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1- Basic ballet techniques are presented in an accessible manner for very young dance enthusiasts. A group of bunnies don leotards and slippers before heading to the studio. Warming up, they "Stretch and bend, up and down, side to side. Keep tummies in." The simply drawn acrylic illustrations show the boys and girls demonstrating positions, and the easy-to-understand text gives further guidance: "Make a V with heels touching"; "Arms rounded in front, as if holding a big ball." Pliés, relevés, and arabesques are practiced until it is time to thank the teacher with a curtsy or bow and end the class. Although the rabbit heads on top of human-looking bodies seem oddly mismatched, this is a gentle introduction.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada
