My 7 year old ballet crazy daughter was thrilled with this book-a fantastic gift on the day of her party!
It is written with little girls in mind-she can grasp 90% of the words on her own first time and after a couple of times managed by herself. The illustrations are a delight-teeny mice with lots going on.
It will be on my list of gifts to give!

In this next book in the Angelina Ballerina series, Angelina prepares for her birthday. However, getting into a bike race with her Alice, Angelina hits a rock and damages her bike beyond repair. When her mother suggests that she can work to raise the money for a new bike, Angelina throws herself wholeheartedly into her work, and birthday are such wonderful times...
Such a wonderful book! I do love Katherine Holabird's work! Although I should say hers, and Helen Craig's, for the illustrations do make this book come so alive. My daughter and I love this book, and recommend it to you.
