OLIVIA the Ballerina

with audio recording

Illustrated by Patrick Spaziante

About The Book

It’s all ballet, all the time for Olivia—but can she find some balance? This deluxe picture book features embossed pages and a textured cover.

When Olivia learns that her role model, Prima Ballerina Penelope Twinkletoes, “eats, drinks, and sleeps ballet,” Olivia vows to do the same. She practices the five ballet positions while setting the dinner table and even does arabesques while taking Baby William for a walk in the stroller. In fact, Olivia is so busy thinking about ballet that she misses a homework assignment and a playdate. What’s an aspiring ballerina to do? Find a solution that is perfectly en pointe!

This beautiful picture book makes a wonderful companion to OLIVIA Acts Out, OLIVIA Claus, OLIVIA Says Good Night, and OLIVIA Dances for Joy.
