The Newest Dancer
Ormerod, Jan. 2008. Ballet Sisters: The Newest Dancer.
Bonnie and Sylvie are back for their second adventure in The Newest Dancer. This is a fun and playful early reader that is just right for young ballet enthusiasts. It's delightful. Just a real treat to read. The book has three chapters or three adventures, "Ballet Day," "The Not Birthday," "The Newest Dancer." Sylvie, for those that haven't read The Duckling and the Swan--the first in the series--is the younger sister. She's always copying her older sister. Wanting to be just like her big sister. This includes dancing like her big sister. In The Newest Dancer, Sylvie gets her chance to really be like her big sister by joining a ballet class all her own. I loved this book, and I can't recommend it highly enough!
