Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiration for Grand-Daughter For Christmas, I gave this book to my near-four-year-old grand-daughter, who had recently begun ballet classes. As I read it to her, she shows me steps, while whirling around--acting out her own ballet show--wearing butterfly wings and pretending to be a princess. We are accompanied by the Mozart Magic Cube, a gift from "PaPa" two Christmases ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great introduction to Classical Ballet and Degas I bought this for a great niece who is starting dance classes and has just happily discovered the work of Degas. I would definitely recommend this book for those similarly interested and their relatives.
