Delicate chalk-pastel illustrations evoke the enchantment of darkened theaters, the magic of sparkling costumes, and the music of a dancer's world.
This book is excellent for introducing young girls to ballet, a genre of dance that teaches poise, grace, confidence, and love of music. Wonderful to read aloud to the youngest of ballerinas, it also makes a great gift for an older ballerina who is starting to read on her own.

Editorial Reviews

Resource Links
"This book is sure to be a big hit with all aspiring ballerinas. ...I am sure it would be a highly circulated item in school and public libraries."
February 2005
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-After attending a dance performance, a young girl decides that she wants to be a ballerina. Enthusiastically, she jumps, twirls, and prances around the house until her parents suggest some classes. At Madame Cherie's School of Dance, the young hopeful begins to learn the fundamentals. At her recital, she feels the same magic that she did when she watched her first ballet. Muted chalk pastel illustrations realistically portray the heroine's enthusiasm and determination to reach her dream as she practices an arabesque in her underwear in her bedroom and struggles with the five positions in class. The depiction of the inexperienced students is appealing and accurate for the most part. However, one youngster suddenly seems to be "on pointe" even though they are all beginning dancers. Nonetheless, both the illustrations and the uncomplicated story give a pleasing glimpse into the world of ballet.-Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
