2009 Award
Beautiful Ballerina
( by Marilyn Nelson/ illus. by Susan Kuklin, Scholastic $17.99 Score: )

Homage to young African American ballerinas in the making, this is a beautiful poem illustrated with endearing photographs. Four young dancers: a preschooler, a schoolgirl, and two older girls are captured in expressive movements that resonate with the lyrical poetry. The photographs reflect their love of the dance and their aspirations in a kind of quiet beauty young dancers are sure to relate to.
