Stacy was overly excited when we opened up the package and revealed all the different skin & hair tones on the main character! She was so happy to see a main character that looks like her. She said “Mami, I want to be like her, a ballerina” of course, this was before we read the book and learned that it wasn’t about becoming a ballerina. It was a much bigger lesson that I am happy I got to share with my daughter when we read ‘Tina Searches for Her Dream”. It was a great conversation with my daughter after we read the inspiring book. Stacy’s face lit up as she talked about her dreams and all the things she wants to be when she grows up. She still wants to give the ballerina thing a shot but says that maybe thats just not for her, but still loves dancing. Every parent will love this book and all children will enjoy the story and the beautiful illustrations. Whats best, is that you can select the skin town the main character will have!
