Picture Book Wednesday: Brave Ballerina


A picture book biography of Janet Collins - the first Black principal dancer at the Metropolitan Opera House. 

Janet Collins had dreams - big dreams. She worked hard to achieve them. I loved reading about her determination and her refusal to change herself because of the color of her skin. She didn't compromise her beliefs. I loved her strength. A fantastic story with wonderful illustrations that made me wish I could dance. 

Library Recommendation: Grab this one for your school and public libraries.
