Ballet Cat Book for Child Ballet Dancer

Ballet Cat Book for Child Ballet Dancer

My Scarlett, she loves ballet and aspires to be a ballerina. 🙂 She prances about in the house all day in her ballerina outfit. We have lessons scheduled this summer for her, her first time and she can’t be more excited.

She was so excited to get the book called Ballet Cat in the mail the other day. I had never heard of this book or the author before but I’m so glad that we have discovered them.

It’s her favorite book right now, both my girls want to read it all day everyday. And not just at nighttime either. They already have their favorite parts of the book memorized and will say it out loud when we get to the page.

“Paw to hoof promise”

“I’m not a pony I’m a phony”

Haha! You’ll just have to read them to find out what that’s all about.

The artwork is eye catching and really draws you into the conversation both characters are having. The book is so simple yet so entertaining. The books are an easy read for mom, it’s funny and I look forward to reading these books to my girls. If you have a little girl who loves ballet or just loves to dance, they would love these books too.

“The Totally Secret Secret”

“Ballet Cat and Sparkles the Pony are trying to decide what to play today. Nothing that Sparkles suggests–making crafts, playing checkers, and selling lemonade–goes well with the leaping, spinning, and twirling that Ballet Cat likes to do. When Sparkles’s leaps, spins, and twirls seem halfhearted, Ballet Cat asks him what’s wrong. Sparkles doesn’t want to say. He has a secret that Ballet Cat won’t want to hear. What Sparkles doesn’t know is that Ballet Cat has a secret of her own, a totally secret secret. Once their secrets are shared, will their friendship end, or be stronger than ever?”

“Dance! Dance! Underpants!”

“Ballet Cat is getting her friend Butter Bear ready for her big ballet debut. “Leap, Butter Bear, leap!” Ballet Cat prompts. But Butter Bear would prefer to just point her toe. When Ballet Cat keeps pushing, Butter Bear gets hungry, then thirsty, then sleepy . . . The bottom line is that Butter Bear would rather do almost anything to avoid making a big leap. Why? Because her bottom is covered in silly underpants! This second entry in the Ballet Cat series will have beginning readers rolling on the floor with laughter.”
