A Bunny in the Ballet Story and Pictures by Robert Beck is tremendously inspiring book. Desiree Rabbit loves to dance. She wants to take ballet, and although there are doubters, she is encouraged by the teacher. Her perseverance brings her through and she helps out when another dancer is sick and she is a hit. The slender ink lines are perfectly enhanced by the watercolors in this charming story of spunk and the joy of doing what you love.
I'll use this in Storytime and with Kindergarteners to Second graders. It's a classic tale to share with parents and teachers about determination.
