This isn’t a book you’ll sit down and read through with your child, but it’s a great book to go back to over and over again. There is a lot of information about each of the featured classic ballets, and it’s presented in a variety of ways: text, photographs, drawings, etc. It would be a great way to introduce your little ballerina to a ballet before going to see it!
