Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Create your own ballet stage production with this charming storytelling kit. Bring the classic tale of Peter Tchaikovsky’s “Sleeping Beauty” to life on a miniature fold-out stage, using delicate ballerina figures and a variety of beautiful scenery backdrops. The story of Princess Aurora and her handsome prince is divided into three acts and a prologue, with descriptions of what character figures and backdrops are needed to play out the scenes. The dancing figures are quite delicate, and children would need to be gentle with the pieces in order for them to last for numerous uses. Accompanied by an instrumental CD of the well-known music from the classic ballet, any little ballerina is sure to enjoy putting on her very own ballet theatre right in her own home. Additional pieces to the book include fun facts about putting on a stage production, sheet music for “The Sleeping Beauty Waltz,” and even a recipe for an old-fashioned Russian dessert. This classic story is brought to life not only on the pages of a book, but also through the hands-on materials that any imaginative reader will love. Reviewer: Carly Reagan
