A ballerina dances every day. She has to get enough sleep, eat healthy food, and stay fit. She has lots of tutus, tights and leg warmers. She uses special shoes, called pointe shoes, to dance on her toes. She keeps practicing until all the steps look perfect. When she has a performance, excitement grows. She is the star of the night and thunderous applause follows. A cheerful and informative book at toddler level about ballerinas and ballet dancing.
