Review: Miss Lina's Ballerinas and the Prince (Miss Lina's Ballerinas)

User Review  - Sarah Gleydura - Goodreads

This story seemed to be about acceptance. Also, about not being too quick to judge, which is good to teach young children. It also is over a subject that young girls can relate to. Although it may be more biased towards a certain audience, the morals behind it are good to learn. Read full review
