Kindergarten-Grade 2 - Pattie Patty dreams of being a ballerina, but every time she tries she crashes to the ground. The geese laugh and her fellow ducks just shake their heads. Patty tries everything: toe shoes, tutu, and tiara - but to no avail. Finally, demoralized by her failure and the cackling of the geese, the little duck gives up and cries. Her friends - Dog, Pig, and Frog - step in, letting her know that her dancing brings joy and humor to their lives. The message about belief in self and encouragement from others comes through loud and clear, and the repetitive text reads nicely in both English and the competent Spanish translation. Illustrated in fresh, kinetic watercolors, this is a book to share alongside Pamela Duncan Edwards's Honk! The Story of a Prima Swanerina (Hyperion, 1998).
