Pearl loves attending dance classes at her mother’s ballet school. Even though Pearl is the youngest and smallest ballerina, she knows how to count her poses and follow along. When her mom suggests that Pearl try going to preschool, Pearl has a lot of questions: What will she learn? Will there be dancing? Fortunately, Pearl's mom knows just how to reassure her that even though she's never been to preschool before, she can handle whatever it has to throw at her!
This charming picture book explores what it's like for a child to try something new — through a child's eyes! Pearl's mother lets her guide the conversation, so she can come to her own conclusion that's she's ready, and even excited, for her new school adventure. This is a sweet and reassuring story about trying something new that’s perfect for young children with separation anxiety — or who just love to dance!
"Cherubic Pearl is the smallest dancer at her mother’s ballet school — except for Violet, her stuffed mouse, which she clutches while practicing at a barre she can’t quite reach. 'Violet and I already go to school,' Pearl counters when her mom mentions preschool. But after learning that she’ll have a chance to paint a sugar plum fairy and listen to such stories as The Nutcracker, Pearl shifts her stance, announcing that Violet wants to attend preschool after all.... This charming antidote to preschool anxiety contains a deftly measured dose of sweetness." — Publishers Weekly
