really liked it

Alexandrea Petrakova Johnson’s mother dreams of her being a famous ballet dancer. Alexandrea, however, has other ideas. She goes to a new ballet class in a new city to appease her mother, expecting to hate it. The other girls in her dance class become her best friends, and she discovers that she enjoys ballet.
This book has some illustrations scattered throughout the book. The illustrations simply reiterate what is happening in the story, but are enjoyable. Several languages are featured in this story, including some Spanish and Italian. All foreign languages words are defined clearly.
Sugar Plum Ballerinas: Plum Fantastic is a wonderful book for children in second through fourth grade. They will relate to the characters, and enjoy the fact that the main group of friends is comprised of children from many different cultures.
