Rosie's off to her ballet lesson in her beautiful pink slippers.And it's a day she'll never forget She learns the basic positions. She learns to point her toes like a sharp pencil, and hold her hands like a ballerina. She learns how to plie, saute, and curtsey. But best of all, she learns how much fun ballet can be Rosie dreams of being a ballerina one day. So when her mother buys her the prettiest pair of pale pink ballet slippers she' s ever seen, she can hardly wait for her first lesson. The big day finally arrives and Rosie meets Madame, Miss Melody (who plays the piano), and her new classmates Tommy, Sally, Chuck, Rani, and Rudolph. Although they do their best to follow along as Madame teaches them to point their toes, plie, and saute, sometimes their excitement gets the better of them. By the final curtsy, Rosie already feels like a real ballerina. Maria Teresa Meloni' s extraordinary illustrations convey all the joyous excitement of a little girl's first ballet lesson, as Rosie and her friends seem to dance off the pages. 1996 ' Pick of the Lists' (ABA)
