The reissue of a classic first storybook to celebrate Helen Oxenbury's work.

A little girl is taken to her first dance class. Her mum buys her some ballet shoes and a pair of baggy tights, and ties her hair into a bun. The girl bounces about with all the other girls and boys and just as things get exciting, her laces come undone and everyone falls down. A warm and funny depiction of a girl's first experience of a dance class and her delight in galloping about with her classmates. Helen Oxenbury's First Storybooks perfectly describe the small but memorable events of childhood. The words are a delight and are perfect for reading aloud, while the pictures offer warm, affectionate visions of a child's world, which parents and children will instantly recognize and love.

My girls wanted to buy this book when they were a little younger, as both have done ballet since they were 2. It's a lovely short story, and they like telling the story from just looking at the pictures. Often makes our bedtime story pile, as short and sweet.
