ANGELINA BALLERINA AT BALLET SCHOOL is a cute picture book story about this beloved character. Angelina is excited to go back to Ballet School after a summer at home. She has been working on a new ballet move that requires her wand and fairy wings, and she cannot wait to show it to her classmates. However, when she tries it out, everything goes haywire, and her teacher tells her that she cannot do it again until it gets more practice.

The next day, Angelina isn't sure she wants to go to school, but she soon learns that with some apologies and a discussion with her teacher about safety that she can continue to innovate and create more cool, new moves.

What I loved: This is a fun story with Angelina that shows how everyone can make mistakes as well as how to make things better when they happen. The illustrations are full of color and details that make this a great book to look through. The story flows smoothly, and children will relate to the story of excitement, mishaps, and then nerves after something goes wrong. The book suggests methods to use after a mistake, including apologizing to those that might have been hurt or troubled and moving forward in a new way.

The text is a bit dense in places, which may make this better for elementary school aged readers vs toddlers and preschoolers.

Final verdict: A picture book about making mistakes and moving on, ANGELINA BALLERINA AT BALLET SCHOOL is a cute new story with a beloved character.
