About book: Brontorina Apatosaurus wants to be a ballerina but she does not have the right shoes and she is too big! Despite Madame Lucilles best efforts Brontorina just does not fit into the studio. Just as it is decided that all is lost Clara's mother presents Brontorina with the 'right' shoes in just her size! The 'can-do' attitude is contagious and soon Brontorina's other problems are solved too.This is a great story which encourages the reader to think with an open mind. I love the illustrations especially the ones of the ballet exercises with all the correct language included. Jete! and Releve! Ballet and dinosaurs = awesome!P.S. My 17 year old showed me this one. A "follow your dreams" story with a twist! All Brontorina Apatosaurus wants in life is to become a ballerina, but it's tricky when you're a giant dinosaur! After introducing herself to Madame Lucille at her Dance Academy, Brotorina tries repeatedly to follow along with dance classes despite the giggles and naysayers in her class. Eventually, Madame Lucille realizes that with enough determination, and a little creativity, there are ways her class can help Brontorina become a wonderful dancer. Through some silliness, a positive message, and an adorable dinosaur, this book is sure to please your dino-lovers and dancers!
