...the pictures are all pink and the book talks about ballet, which little girls love. Also, everything rhymes, including the names of all nine ballerinas, so it’s fun to read out loud. The pictures of the ballerinas are well drawn and illustrate the storyline perfectly.

Synopsis

In four rows of two, Miss Lina's eight ballerinas—Christina, Edwina, Sabrina, Justina, Katrina, Bettina, Marina, and Nina—dance to the park, at the zoo, and even while doing their schoolwork. They are one perfect act, but when Miss Lina introduces Regina, a new girl, the group of nine's steps become a mess.
