Customer reviews

By Diana Boswarva 27 Sep 2013 5

'Angelina Ballerina' is an essential and classic book for any little girl's bookshelf. The illustrations and storyline are wonderful for children from 6 months onwards.

I would recommend that this book is purchased in board book format for little hands.
