How refreshing to find a story focusing on what many may term 'old-fashioned values' - hard work, determination, and courage. All are in abundant supply in Noel Streatfeild's 'Ballet Shoes.' Also in abundant supply is the performing talent of Elizabeth Sastre who gives winsome voice to three orphan girls who are intent upon helping their adoptive parents and making a place for themselves in the world. Ms. Streatfeild, the author of 80 some children's books, admits to loving the theatre all of her life. That's evident in this warm, encouraging story. The girls, Pauline, Petrova, and Posy enroll in the Children's Academy of Dancing and Stage Training, each vowing to make good. They practice, rehearse, practice and rehearse until eventually each discovers what her special talent might be. Listen and enjoy this encouraging story of dreams come true.
