2013 год. A little girl is taken to her first dance class. Her mum buys her some ballet shoes and a pair of baggy tights, and ties her hair into a bun. The girl bounces about with all the other girls and boys and just as things get exciting, her laces come undone and everyone falls down. A warm and funny depiction of a girl’s first experience of a dance class and her delight in galloping about with her classmates. Helen Oxenbury’s First Storybooks perfectly describe the small but memorable events of childhood. The words are a delight and are perfect for reading aloud, while the pictures offer warm, affectionate visions of a child’s world, which parents and children will instantly recognize and love.
