Brianna is the smallest sprite and has a dream of being a Sugarplum Fairy. Can a pixie help her find a shortcut to her dream?

 

 

[easyazon-link asin=”B00ANX0ZWW” locale=”us”]Brianna the Ballet Fairy (KiteReaders Fairy Series)[/easyazon-link] teaches the lesson of believing in oneself and finding the strength from within to achieve goals. Brianna tries to take shortcuts offered by a mischievous pixie only to discover that sometimes confidence and self-reliance are the best paths to a dream becoming a reality.

The illustrations are drawn beautifully but simply (the plums are very clearly plums – which isn’t always so evident just at a glance with picture books) and serves to highlight the theme of the story of a little sprite with big dreams. Children will identify with Brianna in her quest and, I think, easily translate the message to their own lives.
