Ready to Fly: How Sylvia Townsend Became the Bookmobile Ballerina

$18.99

Type:Hardcover
Publisher:Harper Collins

Although there aren’t many ballet schools that will accept a girl like Sylvia in the 1950s, her local bookmobile provides another possibility. A librarian helps Sylvia find a book about ballet and the determined seven-year-old, with the help of her new books, starts teaching herself the basics of classical ballet.

Soon Sylvia learns how to fly—how to dance—and how to dare to dream.
