The perfect book for budding performers, this is the endearing story of young Molly's dream to "fly through the air" like a real dancer. From her first shaky lessons to the dazzling Christmas recital, the spirited girl works tirelessly towards the day she can confidently proclaim "I am a ballerina!" Delicate chalk-pastel illustrations evoke the enchantment of darkened theaters, the magic of sparkling costumes, and the music of a dancer's world.
This book is excellent for introducing young girls to ballet, a genre of dance that teaches poise, grace, confidence, and love of music. Wonderful to read aloud to the youngest of ballerinas, it also makes a great gift for an older ballerina who is starting to read on her own.

I have renewed this book once already and will probably end up with the max of 3 because my 2 1/2 yr old daughter LOVES this book!! She knows the words by heart; it's so sweet to hear her recite the first 3 or 4 pages... I will probably end up buying it at some point. It's a hit! I wish I could give it more stars!
