A bilingual picture book with a double cover and two stories that tells the real life and challenges of Sasha De Sola, principal dancer of the San Francisco Ballet, and a second fictional story about a boy who is inspired by her to become a dancer. Both stories offer a moral that can be applied to life beyond ballet: resilience, overcoming life’s obstacles, and following our heart and passion no matter the difficulties. With beautiful full-page illustrations crafted with an off-pink color palette. Written in rhyme format in English and Spanish. Values contained in the narrative: resilience, perseverance, personal growth, courage, self-worth.

I love that it’s also a story about a boy that dances ballet – my son does that and there aren’t many stories that represent him
