These cute second graders in Ohio got an early look -- they read an advance reader's copy of

FLYING HIGH: The Story of Gymnastics Champion Simone Biles.  


Here's beautiful ballerina, Lauren Anderson, with BRAVE BALLERINA: The Story of Janet Collins. Lauren made history as the first African American to be promoted to principal dancer with the Houston Ballet in 1990. Lauren danced with the Houston Ballet from 1983 to 2006, performing leading roles in all the great classical ballets. She has paved the way for many ballerinas and continues to follow her passion

at the Houston Ballet - teaching and inspiring young dancers. 


I was thrilled to get this news from a parent: after reading BRAVE BALLERINA,

this gorgeous girl wanted to put on her wings and dance to the illustrations. Dance on!


BRAVE BALLERINA was featured in this charming Little Free Library in Walnut, California.
