Good Morning and Happy Book Sharing Monday!
We haven't participated in a few weeks but wanted to take the time to share this week! We've gotten several great books from grandparents (Grandpa, specifically) last week. The one we'll share today is A Child's Introduction to Ballet. The stories, music and magic of classical dance by Laura Lee, Illustrated by Meredith Hamilton.
Not only does this book thorough discuss the history and techniques of ballet, it also tells the stories of some famous ballets--Swan Lake, The Nutcracker and Romeo and Juliet, to name a few. But that's not all, it also has an accompanying CD that coincides with each chapter so we can hear and enjoy the music of each specific ballet. We have just started reading it but have already learned a lot. Haven't check to see if this book is available at the library, but definitely one we're recommending!
