Flashback April 2008

A flashback to what I was reading in April 2008:

The Sleeping Beauty: Create Your Own Ballet by Viola Ann Seddon (illustrator) and Jean Mahoney (author). From my review: “Creating your own ballet for Sleeping Beauty. . . . The book is not just the stage directions to create your own play-it also includes a CD for music cues to move from scene to scene. There are additional details and information, such as the history of Tchaikovsky’s ballet, information about staging the ballet with real people. A great gift for little ballerinas. Or kids who like dollhouses and miniatures. Or future directors, who will be inspired by the mini stage.”

A Visitor for Bear by Bonny Becker, illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton. From my review: “Bear is a loner. He even has a sign on his door: NO Visitors Allowed. So why does that annoying mouse keep stopping by?”
