Ballet Stars by Joan Holub

So you have a little one that likes to dance?  This is the book for her!

Step Into Reading sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can find a copy at your local bookstore.  This is Step 1, which is good for preschool and kindergarten.

Ms. Holub uses simple rhyming text that is easy to read to tell her story.  Shelagh McNicholas's illustrations are sweet with muted colors that add to the ambiance of the story.  There also two pages of stickers if you have a sticker lover in the family.

I can just see a small one doing the four step jump across your floor.  Make sure you have room!  You might also want to give them a tutu to wear so they can pretend they are doing ballet. If you're real brave, you could try some dance steps, too.

Happy reading.

Had a similar book, perhaps the same, can't quite remember on my preschool shelf. Many of the little girls were in ballet and loved this book.
