We have partnered with Disney-Hyperion once again! This time to introduce you to the newest book in the series of Ballet Cat Dance Dance Underpants! Disney-Hyperion was gracious enough to provide a prize pack so that I may treat my readers to a fun giveaway in honor of our love of ballet! All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
I have a little ballerina in my house. She goes by the name Princess Ballerina Emily. Yes, I am totally living vicariously through my daughter and am so fortunate that she loves ballet. I took ballet lessons for several years as a child but never stuck with it, I remember being teased and laughed at because I wasn’t “fit”. My appreciation for ballet did not develop until I was much older, probably around the same time I stopped worrying about what people thought of me, but I felt it was too late to start again.
If you’ve ever had to comfort your child because they were afraid to do something because others might laugh, then this newest release of the Ballet Cat series is perfect for your little one. Dance, Dance, Underpants tells the story of Bear that is too afraid to dance because his friends will laugh at his underpants. No matter what Ballet Cat tries to do to convince Bear, he just won’t dance. Bear continues to find excuse after excuse, until Ballet Cat finally shows him he is safe among friends and his talent can help him overcome his fears.
A great read for children ages 6-8 that are already reading, which also doubles as a good story time reader for parents to enjoy with the little ones. As soon as Emily caught wind of a book in the house with a story about ballet she was all over it. We used this book and what we read to learn about the important of patience, listening, understanding and not worrying about what others might say or think, and as important, not to laugh at or judge others. Reading is so very important to our family and a great way to learn new lessons from any story. Ballet Cat Dance Dance Underpants! will have you twirling and giggling all the way through.
Ballet Cats friend Bear is afraid he will be laughed at so he makes a million excuses for why he cannot dance.
Thinking he’s just imagining things, Ballet Cat asks their friends if they will laugh, only to be surprised by their answers. But what happens next puts all of Bears worries to rest. Without giving away too much, you will need to get a copy of the book to find out.
Both books in the Ballet Cat series are available for purchase on (affiliate link) Amazon for just $9.99 each – the plush cat is available too!
Ballet Cat is getting her friend Butter Bear ready for her big ballet debut. “Leap, Butter Bear, leap!” Ballet Cat prompts. But Butter Bear would prefer to just point her toe. When Ballet Cat keeps pushing, Butter Bear gets hungry, then thirsty, then sleepy . . . The bottom line is that Butter Bear would rather do almost anything to avoid making a big leap. Why? Because her bottom is covered in silly underpants! This second entry in the Ballet Cat series will have beginning readers rolling on the floor with laughter.
Ballet Cat and Sparkles the Pony are trying to decide what to play today. Nothing that Sparkles suggests–making crafts, playing checkers, and selling lemonade–goes well with the leaping, spinning, and twirling that Ballet Cat likes to do. When Sparkles’s leaps, spins, and twirls seem half-hearted, Ballet Cat asks him what’s wrong. Sparkles doesn’t want to say. He has a secret that Ballet Cat won’t want to hear. What Sparkles doesn’t know is that Ballet Cat has a secret of her own, a totally secret secret. Once their secrets are shared, will their friendship end, or be stronger than ever?
Do you have a ballerina at home? Or perhaps a cat that thinks she’s a ballerina? I once had a cat that loved to play fetch.
