Read full description of the books:
Rachel Isadora has done some outstanding books featuring ballet for little girls. And there's nice ones by Patricia Lee Gauch, Aliki Brandenberg, and Peter Sis For cripes sake, even Angelina Ballerina, cutesy-wutsey as it is, has actual BALLET in it.
Not this one. Not so much as a plie in this one or in its companion,Ella Bella Ballerina and Cinderella
There's a nice enough retelling of the ballet's story, there's lots of pink and purple and a little girl in ballet clothes and a princess.
Fine for little girls who like princesses and such. But for little girls (and big ones like me) who dance, look elsewhere for ballet stories.
