Ballet Dreams

Publisher: Scholastic

Review

A little girl who dreams of dancing: skipping over rooftops and pirouetting round the moon. She can twirl on her toes as lightly as snow, and dart through the air like a swallow, so her Grandad calls her Little Bird.

One day, Little Bird sees the ballet practice for Swan Lake, and decides that all she wants is to become a ballerina – and when she gets her very first pair of silk ballet shoes from Grandpa, she is over the moon. Can Little Bird's grand jetes and pirouettes win everyone's heart?

A sparkly, magical book for young dancers, this is the perfect precursor to Noel Streatfield's Ballet Shoes.
