Copeland, Misty. Firebird, PICTURE BOOK. G.P. Putnam’s Sons, $17.99. Content: G.
A professional ballerina shares her encouragement and motivation with a fictional child in this lyrical, poetic book. She explains all of the practice and dedication it takes to get where you want to be as a ballerina dancer. She reminds us that even though it feels like we feel far away from achieving something, with hard work, we are closer than we think.
This book is beautifully illustrated. The pictures are vibrant and interesting. The book was a little slow for me, but definitely appealing.
