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.
