Recommends it for: older children and parents reading with them
Our youngest found this book and just had to read it. It was a little too advanced for her, but we read just a little at a time and focused on the stories. She loves ballet and this is a great book for any child who does, as long as they have the patience to read all the little bits of information and captions for the photos. The stories are interesting and help explain what's going on in each ballet performance.
I loved this book when I was little and obsessed with ballet. It tells you the storyline of all the most popular ballets. Lovely pictures and information for ballet loving girls. It has a little basic ballet information on shoes and position too.
