A young ballerina looks up at her idol and despairs: how can she ever hope to achieve such heights? But her idol speaks back to her, telling her about the thousands of hours of practice that it took to achieve her goals — and shows her how each generation inspires of the next. And through this connection with her hero, the girl realizes that, with determination and hope, she too can soar... across the stage and into the life of her dreams.

In her debut picture book, Misty Copeland tells the story of a young girl — an every girl — whose hero helps give her faith in herself and shows her exactly how, through hard work and dedication, she too can become Firebird. Lyrical and affecting text paired with bold, striking illustrations that are some of Caldecott Honoree Christopher Myers's best work, makes Firebird perfect for aspiring ballerinas everywhere.
