Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-Like the ballerina in Jill Krementz's A Very Young Dancer (Knopf, 1976; o.p.), 13-year-old Eva Lipman is the daughter of a former dancer and a student at the School of American Ballet in New York. While Krementz's book focuses on the dancer's experience in a particular performance, Feldman portrays Eva's everyday life, including her home, her family, and her friends. Readers will learn some behind-the-scenes details about how costumes are made and how dancers rehearse, but they will also see an ordinary teenager who wears braces and likes to shop. The full-color and black-and-white photographs of Eva with her parents and classmates capture the flavor of New York City, showing the girl shopping with her father and relaxing in her crowded studio apartment with her mother. Some of the photos, including several of Eva posing in Central Park wearing tutus that match the flowers, are almost too precious, contributing to the fairy-tale image of a ballerina, but Eva's first-person narrative also discusses the hard work and discipline involved in dancing. An attractive, up-to-date photo-essay that will appeal to budding dancers who want a glimpse of a real ballerina's life.-Dawn Amsberry, formerly at Oakland Public Library, CA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    This was a great book!!!

    I am a Dancer was such a good book!! It really describes what you have to do to be a pro dancer. I am a dancer myself. I don't do pointe, but I want to even though I'm not that great at ballet. This book told me what I will have to do to become a pro. The photography in this book was amazing! I loved this book and I think that others that love dance will love this book,too!!

    Good Book, But Not Enough

    This book is about thirteen year old Eva who dances at the School of American Ballet. She tells about her life as a ballet dancer, but I think that it should have more information rather than picures. But besides that it is a great book for Ballet enthusiasts!
