Review:
Any small girl who dreams of being a ballerina - and the number is legion - will delight in this primer of the dance and its invitations to stretch, twirl, leap, tiptoe, flutter, etc. Artist Peter Sis's expressive black-line drawings make dancing look as easy as breathing. The listener/viewer joins the book's heroine in imagining herself as a grown-up ballerina performing in The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty and other ballets of the classical repertoire. Even listeners who have never taken a dance step before will be inspired to try when they see Sis's endpapers that demonstrate twelve dance positions invitingly. An enticing, light-hearted celebration of the joys of dancing.
