6 Books for the Budding Ballerina

ballerina books

We are entering into a new stage of life at my house, a stage where everything is about ballet to my 4 year old daughter. When I say everything, I really do mean everything. Anything she likes gets ballet tagged onto it. She says things like, “Those were delicious ballet pancakes” and “It’s so fun to pet my ballet cat.”

It’s super cute, and I’m also thinking I could use it to my advantage. I wonder if she would respond more positively to “It’s time to do your ballet chores” or “Please eat your ballet broccoli”? I’ll let you know how my little experiment goes.


Hopefully her ballet cravings will be satisfied soon since Dad and I agreed to sign her up for lessons, but in the meantime we have been reading a ton of books about ballerinas. A few we own, a few came from the library, but all of these are favorites right now.
