Little Kid Reaction

My little ballerina requested this book again and again. She loved Chloe, the story, and the illustrations, especially those in ballet class.

Parent Reaction

I liked the book. Chloe is an easy character for kids and parents to identify with. It's a story about loving yourself and finding your own path.

Type of Book:
This is a story about being true to yourself and not comparing yourself to others.
Educational Themes:

The story's main theme is about finding your own way and not comparing yourself to others. It is also about accepting that everyone has different talents. Both of these things are topics kids - particularly those with siblings - can relate to.
