Thank you Amazon Publishing for the free copy of this book, in exchange of an honest review. All Opinions are our own.
Amazon is knocking it out of the park with these children’s books. We read every kind of book, just because they’re boys, doesn’t mean we can’t read about Ballerina’s (and this cutie happens to be a Ballerina Knight).
Loved this book! It shows kids they can dream, and they can be what they want. The illustrations were vibrant, and eye-catching. The writing was sweet and simple. Very catchy. The first time we read it, the boys had me read it at least 5 times in a row! I love books that make kids realize they have potential to follow their dreams, to be whatever they want to be. I’d say this book is good for boys and girls, ages 3-7 years old.
I’m thrilled to announce that my strong girl picture book is about to be here! Brianna Bright, Ballerina Knight will come to doorsteps all over the US on June 5th, 2018! You may preorder it now!
I’d originally gotten this idea for a ballerina knight when my editor asked for a book targeted for girls. Being a champion of alternative girl books, I was already working on a strong ballerina book. But I was also reading The Game of Thrones. In one of the books, Arya Stark, a princess of one of the noble houses, was being taught how to use a sword. Her teacher called it water dancing. I thought, wouldn’t that be fun if my ballerina could also be a knight and so, Brianna Bright was born!
Liana Hee, my illustrator did such a beautiful job throughout. I love her style which is reminiscent of the 1950’s with a modern twist. You should check out all her other artwork on her instagram here: Liana Hee and her etsy site here: The Art of Lianna Hee.
