I can’t stop playing with this book! It’s so adorable!
The ballet scenes are taken from famous ballets and includes characters like Romeo and Juliet, the Snow Queen, Coppelia, and Cinderella. The text also includes ballet terminology like “plies, grande battements, grand jete, pirouettes, chasse steps”, and more that I didn’t understand but would be fun to learn about!
One thing that I really appreciate is that the “finger tights” are included in their own separate little plastic container that opens and closes easily without ripping or tearing the book. This makes it easy to store the “finger tights” and hopefully not lose them.
The illustrations are beautiful with graceful lines and lovely colors! There are many little details in the background of each ballet scene that really captured my attention.
I can’t wait to share this with my 2-year-old niece who is obsessed with ballet right now!
