A children's book a day, keeps the scary monster away. I am a Librarian and created this blog to share my love of children's books with the rest of the world. I will include my comments on children's books that I love and have shared with others.
I have shared many of these books with my students during storytime when I was the Librarian at the St. Benedict the Moor K to 8 school.

Beautiful Ballerina by Marilyn Nelson and Susan Kuklin
by Marilyn Nelson and Susan Kuklin
I love ballet and have started taking lessons this semester.
I went to see the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's performance of Cinderella and this past weekend, went to the the PittsburghOpera's La Cenerentola (Cinderella) by Giachino Rossini.
I loved both the PBT's and Pittsburgh Opera's Cinderella.
I found this book Beautiful Ballerina by Marilyn Nelson and Susan Kuklin and had to review it for this blog.
This delightful read contains poety as well as photos of real students at the Dance Theatre of Harlem.
This book would make a great addition to home, school, public and other libraries. I recommended this to my friends who have daughters taking ballet as I knew they would be able to identify with the story, pictures, and book overall. I hope that you all enjoy this magnificient read as much as I did.
Until the next time.
