"This endearing story teaches children the value of earning something and that the joy of the journey can be just as sweet as the reward....The muted, rosy illustrations create a soft mood and complement the tone of the story beautifully."--School Library Journal "Without preaching, [Marilyn Singer and Alexandra Boiger] score some important points about the value of patience, persistence, and the pursuit of perfection."--Publishers Weekly "A nice addition to the recently growing collection of ballet-themed books." --Booklist "The glittery pink cover and endpaper spreads of the five ballet positions are appealing, and Singer weaves the language of ballet throughout her story."--Kirkus Reviews
