We are delighted to be stocking this beautifully illustrated book, Lettice Ballet Practice by Mandy Stanley.
We haven’t stocked any books before but when I received a telephone from the author herself it didn’t take much persuasion. Having a young daughter that is currently taking ballet lessons there was lots about the book that made me smile. I’m sure lots of you will recognise ‘good toes, naughty toes’!
Having written over 200 children’s books, Mandy is an award winning author and illustrator and like us here at Little Tigers, is based in Suffolk. For some background information take a look here – https://mandystanley.com/all-you-need-to-know-about-lettice-rabbit/
Lettice is one of her most popular characters and is known for her love of dancing. In this instalment, we learn from Lettice how she warms up, practices her positions from first to fifth and cools down. It uses technically correct ballet terms and positions and includes the subtle message that practice and determination can bring delightful results.
