After seeing the ballet, Molly decides she wants to be a ballet dancer.

Orca Book Publishers
An irresistible and determined ballerina shows readers how to reach for their dreams.
The perfect book for budding performers, this is the endearing story of young Molly's dream to "fly through the air" like a real dancer. From her first shaky lessons to the dazzling Christmas recital, the spirited girl works tirelessly towards the day she can confidently proclaim "I am a ballerina!" Delicate chalk-pastel illustrations evoke the enchantment of darkened theaters, the magic of sparkling costumes, and the music of a dancer's world.
This book is excellent for introducing young girls to ballet, a genre of dance that teaches poise, grace, confidence, and love of music. Wonderful to read aloud to the youngest of ballerinas, it also makes a great gift for an older ballerina who is starting to read on her own.

I have renewed this book once already and will probably end up with the max of 3 because my 2 1/2 yr old daughter LOVES this book!! She knows the words by heart; it's so sweet to hear her recite the first 3 or 4 pages... I will probably end up buying it at some point. It's a hit! I wish I could give it more stars!
