Reader Praise for Beatrice Learns to Dance
- From Cristen Casados
“Beatrice first turns to her ‘Dance 101’ book for help but finds it to be not so helpful. She then turned to a dancing video but learned that she couldn’t keep up. Frustrated with breaking things, she then moves outside where her dancing neighbor, Melvin, hears about her problem. Melvin encourages Beatrice to dance in her own way rather than copying everyone else. Beatrice soon learns that dancing came natural to her. This is such a cute story about the ever-so-common topic of ‘figuring things out on your own.’ I’ve always encouraged my daughter to try things by herself first and this story totally lines up with my teaching methods.”
- From Andrea Raiff
“Eleanor had me read Beatrice twice to her today. She says she’s Beatrice, and I’m a robot mom :)”
