Ballerina Dreams: From Orphan to Dancer
This story is about a small girl who lives in an orphanage, and she loves playing with her best friend. Her best friend never makes fun of her because her skin is dark and light. One day, she sees a story about a girl in a tutu and slippers, in a pose the girls have never seen. She thinks the girl is beautiful and wants to be just like her. She asks her teacher about it, and her teacher tells her the girl is a ballerina. She decides she wants to be a ballerina someday, too. Then a woman comes and adopts the girl. She is so sad because she thinks she will never see her best friend again, but the lady adopts both girls! The lady becomes their new mom and puts the girl in ballet class. The girl works very hard and dances every day, and is very good at it.
I liked this book because it is a true story that tells about a little girl who wants to be a ballerina. I like ballerinas and I want to take ballet, too. I like that she is adopted and gets to be in a ballet class. Her dream is so strong that she works really, really hard at it until she is so good that she gets to be a real ballerina on stage.
