I was given a chance to review a children book yesterday by I'm a full time mummy, and she emailed the PDF version of the book to me. Back home, I quickly opened the book and read to my little Princess. For my girl who has not really into books, this is an introductory book to her. I read it to her, and show her the pictures in the book (big and colourful) and the sentences are just short and simple. For my girl who is not a book person, it's good so she don't get distracted much, and it took us about 10 minutes to finish 'reading' the book.
Mary Lee keep the book in very simple format, and illustrated a girl's dream of learning and becoming a ballerina, and that journey to be one is not smooth. Of course it's good to tell children that falling is not a big hurdle for them to be successful. If they continue trying, they will then be able to make their dream come true!
I like the descriptions use in the book too! It involved ice-cream and even elephant! This is a very interesting book, and it has a series to it!
The book summary from Amazon:-
Mia is a sweet little girl with a big imagination. Today is her first day of ballet class and she is very excited. This energetic story shows what it means to be part of a team and that some things can still be wonderful even when they are not yet perfected.
