Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Beautiful" Perfect for a ballerina lover! Written in lovely rhyme with a great message. When we finished reading it the first time my almost four year old girl looked at me and said "beautiful"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rhythmic and lovely So pleased with this lovely book, perfect for a little princess or budding ballerina. Bought this for my girl last Christmas when she was 3 and it is still often requested at bed time. It's very rhythmic and flows well, which I appreciate in a bedtime story and it is just the right length for her attention span.

Editorial Reviews

French illustrator Davenier (one of the New York Times'' Ten Best illustrators for 2002) keeps the little girls exuberantly dancing in class, through math lessons, in the park, at the zoo, and at the beach. Her ink, watercolor and colored pencil drawings are lively, detailed, and witty; readers may enjoy tracking the shades of pink from pale to potent in fashions for nightgowns, bathing suits, school dresses, and shopping outfits--as well as tutus. (They can also note that the new classmate wears hot pink leg warmers, as do all the others when they finally accept her.) Maccarone''s agile rhyming text dances along, too, making good use of the nine musical names Christina, Edwina, Sabrina, Justina, Katrina, Bettina, Marina, Nina, and new friend, Regina. Girls who love dance will likely find this story of immersion in ballet, making friends, and learning to adapt, most appealing.
