Ballerina Dreams, Paperback Book

Description

One windy day, a magazine blew down the road. I reached out and caught it. A pretty picture of a woman was on the front cover of the magazine.

She wore a short pink dress that stuck out around her in a circle.

She looked very happy. At the age of three, Michaela DePrince found a photo of a ballerina that changed her life.

She was living in an orphanage in Sierra Leone at the time, but was soon adopted by a family and brought to America.

Michaela never forgot the photo of the dancer she once saw, and decided to make her dream of becoming a ballerina come true.

She has been dancing ever since, and after a spell as a principal dancer in New York, now dances for the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam.

Beautifully and gently illustrated by Ella Okstad, Ballerina Dreams is the younger-reader edition of Michaela DePrince's highly moving memoir, Hope in a Ballet Shoe.
