Shea, Bob, The Totally Secret Secret. Disney Hyperion, 2015. $9.99. PICTURE BOOK.
Sparkle Pony and Ballet Cat love to play with each other, especially when it involves ballet. Something, however, is different about Sparkle Pony. He doesn’t really seem to be enjoying ballet, Can Ballet Cat figure out why?
The pictures are colorful and fun. The characters feel a little off, but they teach a good lesson about honesty for kids. The text is simple and good for toddlers and preschoolers or for kids learning to read. A good read aloud or together for fans of Bob Shea or for kids who enjoy animals. PreK, EL (K-3). OPTIONAL.
