Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Kids will enjoy the situation comedy and the surprise in people and story."--Booklist.  
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In this easy to read story, a young girl loves baseball, but her mom wants her to do more girl things, so ballet is added to the repertoire. One of her teammates is also in the class, and they don't want the team to know. Then Madame announces a recital and her friend will be the star. When her friend's crown flies off during the recital, our reluctant ballerina makes a stupendous catch to the cheers of her teammates sitting in the audience. A "Step Into Reading" level 2 book.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- Many girls will feel an affinity for this young narrator. Her mother insists that she take ballet lessons, and the child worries that her baseball teammates will find out. But at the recital, she saves the show when she rescues her friend's crown with a well-executed dancing catch. Numerous full-color illustrations offer plenty of reading clues for emerging readers. Another strong offering from this series. --Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
