Starting Ballet is an information-packed book that is perfect for children interested in dance generally and ballet specifically. Colourful illustrations and photographs, and simple, clear text, take readers through the basic ballet steps, and photographs of professional dancers helps to inspire and coach.

Educationally, Starting Ballet can also be used for home learning, to support Key Stage One English reading skills. The book is a great way of encouraging youngsters who are interested in dance and ballet to read different kinds of books, such as information books, therefore increasing their interest in reading generally. It may also help reluctant readers, by attracting them to the subject matter, rather than the activity of reading. (5 to 11 years) --Amanda York
