T is for Tutu~A Ballet Alphabet, by S. Rodriguez and K. Browning

Purchase this hardback children's book HERE

Tutus and leotards, pointe shoes and ribbions, stretching exercises at the barre--these are all familiar images when one is thinking of ballet. But there's much more to this historic dance form than pink tulle. There's hard work with years of study.

Young readers will find themselves pointing their toes, practicing the five positions, and dreaming of being onstage as a sugarplum fairy or a king with a crown.
