Children’s Book Committee – November Pick
Gorgeous pastel paintings bring to life this inspiring chronicle of dancer/choreographer Robert Battle’s journey from bow-legged childhood to artistic director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Sources and other back matter.
Our Young Reviewer says:
This book is special because it teaches a lot of good lessons (hard work pays off) which everybody should know. I would recommend this book for ages 11-20, who just started arts, sports, or a language. This is because it shows you can learn things even at an older age.
