Overview

DK Readers: The Little Ballerina is now available with read-along audio feature, paced so that a child can read along with the text according to their level of reading confidence. It is the ideal programme to enable parents to support their child's literacy at home.

It''s the day of the big performance at Laura''s ballet school. Suddenly disaster strikes! Can Laura help save the show?

This Level 2 book is perfect for children who are beginning to read alone.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-Posed color photographs on a white background illustrate the story of a child's first ballet show. After rehearsing for the part of a rabbit, Laura is asked to fill in for an injured student and ends up dancing a main role. The text is primarily a vehicle to illustrate dance terminology, and words are defined in boxes sprinkled throughout. A two-page spread illustrates the different foot positions and one page shows six steps. Although this colorful, attractive volume will be picked up by young dancers, it is not an engaging reading experience.- Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
