A Book for a Balle-reader

I hope our preschool friend Gracie will think this birthday book is worth a pirhouette. Chasing Degas by Eva Montanari follows a little ballerina through the streets of Paris after Monsieur Degas accidently takes her ballet bag from her final rehearsal before the big recital.

In the quest to find Degas, young readers discover the world of impressionism as the little ballerina encounters painters who were contemporaries of Degas.


Chasing Degas is certain to catch the interest of little ballerinas, artists and dreamers.

"Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?" -- Friedrich Nietzsche

She is so adorable, and it looks like she loves her book. It looks lovely, and I appreciate the heads up on this. I have a little ballerina who might just enjoy this!

What a sweet book! I am sure Gracie will love it. Brings back memories of my favorite book as a little girl -- also about a ballerina! Thank you to your daughter for sharing some of the pages with us!

Looks like a great book! I've seen some Degas ballerina's in person and they are so lovely.
