My daughter picked this book. She enjoyed the story and the challenge of reading a longer book. This was one of her favorites this year.
This resonated more with my young daughter than my son but it was still a wonderful chapter book that all enjoyed. When you fall, try try again! Literally!
This is such a cute story. My 6 year old loves having her very own first chapter book!
We loved Lena’s example of never giving up on her dream, even in the face of discouragement.
This book helped build my daughter’s confidence in reading. Once she completed the story she felt so happy and proud of her accomplishment. It was the first chapter book that she was able to complete in one day on her own. The story kept her interest so she kept reading.
“Lena wanted to dance. More than anything else in the world, she wanted to twirl and leap and dance around on her toes.”
Lena dreams of being a dancer and doing big, beautiful leaps for everyone to see. But first, she has to learn how! It will take both dance lessons and life lessons for Lena to learn how to dance. Lena will have to work very hard to be ready for her big recital. Will she have the perfect leap ready in time?
