A Ballerina Book: “Ballet Star”

“Ballet Star” is written by Nicola Baxter and illustrated by Gill Cooper. This is a picture book about a little girl with a big dream. Star’s granny took her to the ballet one day. She found it to be so magical that she wanted to learn how to do it too. Star took ballet lessons and discovered that ballet is hard work. She also realized it would be a long time until she could dance well. Would she ever be a true ballet star?

This was another ballet book that sparked a few ideas when I was writing “The Triplet Ballerinas”. I loved all the colorful illustrations and all the ballet terms throughout. There was even a page describing Star’s ballerina look. I am sure it will also remain on my “keeper” shelf. Beverly
