Pearl has new skates.
They are real skates
(not double runners),
and she can't wait to try them.

Pearl inches out onto the frozen pond.
But instead of twirling,
she topples.
Instead of spinning,
she falls -- splaaat!

Pearl has new skates.
They are shiny white
with red tassels,
and she loves them.

Will Pearl ever skate in real life the way she skates in her dreams?

About the Author:

Ms. Keller lives in West Redding, Connecticut.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. Once again, Keller offers a gentle animal story that beautifully captures a child's anxieties. Little rabbit Pearl can't wait for the pond to freeze so that she can use her new ice skates. At home she practices twirls and jumps, imagining herself gliding across the ice like a dancer. When she finally takes her inaugural spin on the ice, however, she falls and then wants to go home. After Pearl spends a few frustrated days indoors, her uncle Jack offers to take her skating on a quiet morning, and Pearl learns to start slowly, stay upright, and enjoy herself. With her pitch-perfect text and uncluttered watercolor-and-ink pictures that seem ready-made for an animated series, Keller tells a tender story about accepting the failures and frustrations that come with learning something new. Children will easily recognize Pearl's wild ambitions, obstinate fears, and then her glee as she realizes that she doesn't have to be "a ballerina on the ice right away." Gillian Engberg
