My Take on the Book
Caroline Rowlands has written a book specifically for children who are interested in ballet. The book not only will teach ballet positions and dance, but will give your child opportunities to use their imagination and to show their creativity.
There is a section about THE NUTCRACKER ballet. Your child will draw the missing pictures that accompany written text.
Another group of pages show the positions of the hands and feet in typical ballet stances. With this visual your child will be able to practice these positions.
