JD_Brianna_Ballet_FairyBrianna is the smallest sprite and has a dream of being a Sugarplum Fairy. Can a pixie help her find a shortcut to her dream?






Brianna the Ballet Fairy (KiteReaders Fairy Series) teaches the lesson of believing in oneself and finding the strength from within to achieve goals. Brianna tries to take shortcuts offered by a mischievous pixie only to discover that sometimes confidence and self-reliance are the best paths to a dream becoming a reality.

The illustrations are drawn beautifully but simply (the plums are very clearly plums—which isn’t always so evident just at a glance with picture books) and serves to highlight the theme of the story of a little sprite with big dreams. Children will identify with Brianna in her quest and, I think, easily translate the message to their own lives.

Brianna the Ballet Fairy (KiteReaders Fairy Series) is the perfect gift for a small child or early education teachers and is free in Kindle format on December 19, 2012.
