Ballet Kittyby Bernette Ford, Sam Williams
Ballet Kitty wakes up in the pink—ballerina pink, of course—until she realizes she can’t find her slippers anywhere. Suddenly her leaps aren’t as lighthearted or her pirouettes as pretty. Where could they be? she mumbles and grumbles. How can she dance in her clunky old sneakers? But very quickly Kitty discovers that as long as she’s doing her most perfect plies and cutest curtsies, she’ll always be happy…right from her head to the tips of her little pointed toes!
Bernette Ford’s delightful dance-loving story and Sam Williams’s charming pas de deux of pussycats will inspire every little ballerina!
PreS-Gr 1 Ballet Kitty is preparing for her playdate with her friend Princess Pussycat. It should be a time of joy, but Kitty is distressed because she cannot find her pink ballet slippers and will have to play in her yucky, dirty pink sneakers instead. Despite this hindrance, the day is great fun, and the missing ballet slippers are found "just where she had left them the night before!" The back cover states that this book is "For little ballerinas everywhere," and there is absolutely no attempt to appeal to any other sort of reader. Pink permeates the simple, cutesy illustrations and the text is more than a tad treacly. That said, the book will be a huge hit with its intended audience of little girls who admire a pretty package. A purely supplemental purchase.-Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA
