PreS.-Gr. 2. Children who like dancing will enjoy this delightful encounter with a little girl who dreams of flying with her feet. Mina arrives early to her ballet class in order to watch the older students practice. She loves watching them because they look as if they're floating on air. Mina hopes that with hard work she will learn to fly, too. During class, she stretches, does exercises at the barre, and assumes the five ballet positions. From arabesques to pirouettes, examples of each position are clearly and colorfully illustrated, allowing interested children to assume the proper stance on their own. All dance step names are accompanied by their phonetic spellings to aid in pronunciation. Cynthia Turnquest
