Ballet Dreams by Cerrie Burnell


Ballet Dreams by Cerrie Burnell

Once there was a little girl who dreamed of dancing. Of skipping over rooftops and pirouetting round the moon. She could twirl on her toes as lightly as snow, and dart through the air like a swallow, so her Granddad called her Little Bird. One day Little Bird sees the ballet practice for Swan Lake, and decides that all she wants is to become a ballerina. When she gets her very first pair of silken ballet shoes from Grandpa, her face lights up like a star. An enchanting picture book about following your dreams, written by CBeebies' presenter Cerrie Burnell.
