A little girl who loves to twirl, a plethora of pink tutus and delightful rhyming prose combine to make Leslea Newman’s “Miss Tutu’s Star” (due out August 1 from Abrams Books for Young Readers) a winner for the preschool and young elementary set. We are helpless to resist lines like,
“Selena took some steps with flair and landed on her derriere. She sighed and said, ‘I’m such a klutz.’ Miss Tutu said, ‘But you’ve got guts.”
Plies, releves and arabesques – plus charming illustrations (including the one pictured here) by Carey Armstrong-Ellis – make this picture book a winner. And it can be yours!
Click comments and tell us about your kids’ extra-curricular experiences – do you have a little ballerina, a budding flutist or fledgling swimmer? What age did they start? We’ll pick a winner’s name next week!
Speaking of which, congrats are due to reader Jackie, who won last week’s “Giggle, Giggle, Quack” DVD!
