Review: Where’s The Ballerina?

So, Poppy my daughter is currently Ballerina mad! All she wanted for Christmas was very specifically is a pair of pink Ballet shoes with long pink ribbons.
So when this book dropped through our letterbox last week for a review, I knew straightaway this was going to be a winner. I kept it for Christmas and on Christmas day Poppy opened the book and her face lit up.
Poppy loved the detailed pictures, the array of fairy tail drawings fuelled her vivid imagination, this book is certainly going to be a keeper. I loved that the book catered for many age groups, a 5 year old can find the Ballerina and a 10 year old… I think (although I don’t have one) would find the stories of interest. There is a lovely history section that explains the history of each of the ballets, Poppy’s slightly older sister who is nearly 8 also really liked the book too. They spent at lease 15 minuets in the Christmas present opening dash reading this and in the end Poppy only gave up looking at it as Evie wanted to open another.
This book has amused Poppy for a long time and weeks later it is still going strong.
Beautiful detail, lovely wording. An enchanting book for little ballet lovers!
