Sophie’s Ballet Show by Rosalinda Kightley is every little girl’s dream come true. This exquisite pop-up book tells the story of Sophie’s first ballet lesson. The book is colored with lots of pinks and purples and cute little girls galore. Each turn of the page invites the reader to explore the story closer with flaps, moving pieces and ballet lingo. The story culminates with a special ballet show and a magical two-page pop-up of the entire stage. Little girls will almost be able to picture themselves as ballerinas as they move through the story and 3-D effects. This book would make a wonderful gift for any little girl that loves ballet or is even thinking about trying out ballet.
