Seller's Description:

Lyrical, inspiring, and affecting text paired with bright, appealingÔ_illustrations makeÔ_Ready to FlyÔ_perfect for aspiring ballerinas everywhere who are ready to leap and to spread their wings! Ready to FlyÔ_is the true story of Sylvia Townsend, an African American girl who falls in love with ballet after seeingÔ_Swan LakeÔ_on TV.Ô_This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share at home or in the classroom.Ô_ Although there aren_ã_t many ballet schools that will accept a girl like Sylvia in the 1950s, her local bookmobile provides another possibility. A librarian helps Sylvia find a book about ballet and the determined seven-year-old, with the help of her new books, starts teaching herself the basics of classical ballet. Soon Sylvia learns how to fly_ã”how to dance_ã”and how to dare to dream. Includes a foreword from Sylvia Townsend, a brief history of the bookmobile, an author_ã_s note, and a further reading list.
