The book cover alone will draw you into this new picture book about Anna Pavlova, considered one of the greatest ballerinas of all time.
Sweet in tone and pictures, this book will be accessible and intriguing for dancers of all ages - from as early as age 4 up to age 11. Anna grew up in Russia with a single mother. Finally at age 10, she was accepted into the Imperial Ballet School. She rose to fame for her performance as well as belief that "ballet can be for everyone."
To add to the reading experience, find photos of Anna Pavlova online via Google Images or Pinterest. She was stunning, and these vintage photos still convey her elegance.
