This delightful story about a little girl who joins a ballet class comes with big color illustrations and all kinds of interactive features on every page. There are tabs to pull, flaps to lift, wheels to turn, and a wonderful pop-up ballet scene on the book's final two-page spread. When kids pull the book's tabs, little Sophie and her classmates actually move around, practicing their steps and learning to dance. Little girls will also enjoy turning a pair of wheels in order to see Sophie trying on many different dance costumes. Here's a big, bright picture book that every little girl will love!
