Giveaway now CLOSED ~ Congrats to Carrie for Winning

Bella Basset Ballerina
By Laura Aimee Garn
Illustrated by Valerie Sokolova

About the Book:
Bella Basset is a pup when her mother takes her to see the famous Royal Borzoi Ballet for the first time. At the ballet, a dream is born: Bella wants to become a dancer! But in Bella's world, only Borzois can dance, so she has many obstacles to overcome before she can realize her dream. This is a story about dedication and perseverance, which may give children (and grown-ups) the inspiration to pursue their dreams.

About Pretty Please Press:
Pretty Please Press publishes children's books that are designed to be read aloud and talked about. Each book contains a message about character and values that helps parents and children think and talk about a variety of issues. Pretty Please Press was founded in 2001 by author Laura Aimee Garn, and is now led by publisher Vera Venturi.

Pretty Please Press was created with the idea that reading to your children will help establish good communication between parents and children. Many education and parenting experts stress that reading to or with children is one of the most important things parents can do to make sure kids stay on the right track. Reading together during elementary school years helps parents and children bond as a family. Opening up lines of communication with kids early in life will encourage them to talk to you later, when big "character issues" arise. In addition, they provide free educational downloads including Vocabulary Building Cards, Concept Building Cards, and Character Building Lesson Plans.

Currently Pretty Please Press has 20% off the list price for their books purchased through their site as well as "buy 3 get 1 free offer".

My Review:
I really liked this book. I loved how cute the illustrations are. This book is full of an inspiration. I like the message of dedication and preserverance. This story lets you know that all things are possible but you need to work hard to achieve your goals. I think this is a great book for adults to read to younger children and remind them that with determination they can do anything, even if they are told they can't. I think that the older children would enjoy reading this book also. This would be a great story for teachers to read to their classes and they can get character building lesson plans to go along. This would make a great gift.
