    A young and blossoming ballerina doubts her dancing abilities when she’s about to enter an audition Her shadow—or inner voice—reminds her that she has everything she needs to participate Will she dance?I love that the author introduces the power of our own self talk That we can talk ourselves out of something—by clinging to insecurities orwe can talk ourselves into something—by believing in ourselvesThe illustrations are gorgeous colorful and upliftingRating Five leaping twirling stars

    Cute illustrations but the text didn't impress me

    Sweet and gently metaphoric It could be about priming oneself for an audition or maybe a reminder that life is a dance and everyday is a good day to stand straight and hold one's head high I liked the illustrations😊

    A cute and inspirational story I thought the text was a little bland at times but I loved the illustrations especially the fact that the little dancer was a girl of color And as a dancer I appreciated that the inside cover illustrations were pretty accurately depicted ballet positions
