A Bunny in the Ballet by Robert Beck –OPTIONAL

Beck, Robert A Bunny in the Ballet 320 pgs. Orchard Books, Jan 2014. $17.99.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G. PICTURE BOOK
Desiree is a rabbit who won’t give up on her dream to be a ballerina. She takes classes and overcomes the odds to be in the Nutcracker.
A great book for a ballet fan, featuring graceful illustrations and linework. I liked how the bunny didn’t give up, no matter how many times she was told that 'there are no bunnies in the ballet'. I didn’t particularity care for the Madeline style art but it might find a happy home at your library.
