    This sweet picture book perfectly captures the love and admiration that little sisters have for their big sisters, as Mia tries to live up to the expectations of her ballerina big sister. Smiljana Coh's textured illustrations are adorable. I especially enjoyed finding the cats on each page, and I suspect that children would love searching for and pointing them out as well. This book would lend itself very well to a preschool storytime, and I can see many little girls loving it. *I received an AR [...]

    I saw a little boy on the cover and I was hoping it would be about him. Sadly, no. The illustrations are nice but the story is lackluster.

    I picked this up at our local bookstore in Phila b/c I loved the cover - colorful faces and little boys on the cover of a book about ballerinas? Yes please. Unfortunately the tone of this book was a bit harsh (older sisters, man), though Coh's illustrations are a delight throughout and I'm a new fan.

    Ik las dit prentenboek als een voorleesboekje bij het project 'Boekenkaravaan'.

    Wat was dit een lief prentenboek. Ik vond ook de poster die aan de achterkant van de cover jacket zat erg leuk. Ik zag dit boek in de boekenwinkel en ik wist dat ik het erg leuk zou vinden. Ik hou van boeken over ballet, en wat is er nou leuker als het een prentenboek is over ballet. Over een klein meisje die net als haar grote zus op ballet wil, maar waar haar zus toch eventjes een paar kleine (wel klein, het was makkelijk opgelost, maar het waren toch wel ietsje grote dingen) dingen had die ha [...]

    InI Want to Be a Ballerinaby Anna Membrino, she tells about a young girl yearning for the opportunity to be a ballerina, just like her older sister. Mia, the younger sister, tires to mimic her older sister in all she does. She wears her hair the same and practices the same techniques in the hopes of becoming her. One day her sisters tells her about a class that she has signed Mia up for. She gets her all ready and takes her to class. In the end, Mia is so tired after her ballet lesson but she is [...]

    Mia wants to be a ballerina just like her sister. She has her entire outfit ready so she is ready to be a ballerina. Her sister however reminds her that ballerina's need balance, so Mia practices. Then her sister reminds her that she needs coordination, so she practices again. Then Mia is told she needs to be delicate, so Mia practices some more. But there's moreThis is a wonderfully adorable story about how a little bit of hard work goes a long way to achieving your dreams. The delicate colors [...]

    This was cute! Mia wants to be a ballerina just like her big sister. But her sister teaches her that ballerinas need to practice lots to achieve balance, coordination, and grace. Mia works hard, until one day her sister finally takes her to her first ballet class. Even though Mia's first class is hard, her sister encourages her not to give up. I liked the diversity of Mia's classmates, and the emphasis on practice and dedication.

    Mia wants to be a ballerina, just like her big sister. So her big sister tells her all the things she needs to do to become a ballerina. Mia didn't realize there was so much involved! But she wants to be a ballerina, so she practices. And practices. And practices. The words are simple and the illustrations are cleverly drawn. Sometimes there is more than one scene on a page, and sometimes the pages are filled with just one scene. The pictures extend out to the edge of the pages, like a ballerina [...]

    The central theme of I Want To Be a Ballerina is practice makes perfect. It remind readers that there are skills in what experts do and that it takes hard work and practice to become good. This story is about admiring your older sibling and wanting to do what they do and maybe it's more about spending time sharing what they love than the skill itself. If you need a book to remind kids about how practicing the right things helps us get better, this book could help you onvey that message.

    A charming story with the underlying message practice makes perfect. I also like how the older sister is ok with the her younger sister coping her. Instead of saying don't copy me she offers suggestions on how to be a better ballerina. A fun read aloud with toddlers.The illustrations are drawn in a muted tone, I particularly like what appears to be different textures in some of the illustrations.

    Mia dreams of becoming a ballerina. She thinks all she need are the shoes, the tutu the tights and she is a ballerina. But, hold on there is more to being a ballerina. Next she goes to one lesson-so now she is a ballerina. But not yet-is all lost. No her sister supports her desire to be a ballerina so now she is on her way. The illustrations are simple and the colors set the tone of the beauty of ballet. Great book that can lead to discussion of what it takes to achieve a goal.

    OMERGER. The cuteness is unbearable. I love these simplistic illustrations, I heart them, I adore them. My six year old self may have just had a heart attack about this baby ballerina theme. I loved how the other ballerinas on the cover and in the class are so diverse, but I would have liked a little more of that in the story. A sequel, perhaps??

    The story is simple yet sweet, and the mixed media artwork is cozy and beautiful. I'll definitely be recommending for our library system to buy it.*I received an ARC of this title from the publisher via Edelweiss.

    I didn't like that she seems to have to earn time with her big sister.

    this was sweet and I loved the illustrations

    Loads of girl appeal with all the pink! Glad to see some diverse children, including boys, in the ballet classes. Keep practicing, Mia!

    I thought this was TERRIBLE. My ballerina loving little girl thought otherwise.

    Not only is this a cute story, it also has 2 little boys in the ballet class. Stellar choice for a quick and enchanting read about dance and siblings.

    Learning new things takes practice.

    I liked the illustrations more than the story.

    Perfect choice for young ballet enthusiasts.

    Gorgeous illustrations & coloring!

    I like the book's emphasis on hard work and practice! The illustrations were merely okay.

    I was really excited when I saw this book because there were boys on the cover. But boy ballerinas weren't really the focus.
