    One thought on “Belinda Begins Ballet

    1. Kelly on said:

      Belinda is a little girl with big, big feet. And although one of her teachers wants to give her a role in a play that is undesirable, Belinda follows her heart and begins ballet.I didn't think I'd like this story, but it was really sweet. I think it had a nice message of friendship and following one's heart.

      Belinda Begins Ballet by Amy Young is a motivating story about a little girl that was born with abnormally big feet. Although she was good at activities such as soccer and getting the cookie jar from the highest shelf, she wasn’t always the best at activities such as jumping rope and playing hopscotch. Belinda accidentally landed the clown role in the school’s talent show, even though she had no interest in being a clown. After one of her practice, she found herself in a dark auditorium, whe [...]

      Belinda was born with big feet. Seriously BIG. Everyone said she would grow into them, but she didn't; her feet kept right on growing. Sometimes that was a good thing (reaching the cookie jar on a high shelf was easier) and sometimes it was a bad thing (jumping rope was difficult). When the talent show comes around, Mrs. Rhino takes one look at Belinda's feet and decides she should be a clown. Belinda hates it, but she can't argue with Mrs. Rhino. Feeling miserable, after rehearsal she slips int [...]

      I was pleasantly surprised with this book. This book was initially picked up at the local public library by my three year old because it has a ballerina on the cover and she is obsessed with dance and ballerinas. However, it is a great book with a fantastic story for all children, not just girls. Belinda, as you can see by the cover, has very large feet and can see the good as well as the bad in her situation. One day in school, (and this is my one issue with this book) the drama teacher (who ha [...]

      I read this at We Give Books (wegivebooks/books/beli). Such a wonderful story! Belinda was born with big feet, which causes her teacher, Mrs. Rhino, to make her a clown in the talent show. She has to practice every day, doing things she does not enjoy doing. Luckily, after rehearsals, she catches Camille doing her ballet practices for the talent shows.Belinda learns to do ballet by watching Camille from the shadows, and does her ballet in the clown suit during the talent show. Camille wins the t [...]

      Everything about Belinda was tiny, except for one thing - her enormous feet. We are not talking just regular large feet; we are talking feet so large you could ski with them.When Talent Show time comes around, it is not all fun and games for this sweet young girl when Mrs. Rhino thinks that her only talent appears to be that of a clown. Then one day sad Belinda happens upon a ballet dancer. Seeing her float on the stage sparks an idea and a smile for Belinda. Maybe, just maybe.Sometimes you have [...]

      This was a cute book. Belinda was born with really big feet. She is told to be a clown for the school talent show because of her big feet. Belinda doesn't want to be a clown after rehearsals she goes into the auditorium and watches another girl dancing. Then, Belinda goes home and practices the ballet she watched. Instead of being a funny clown for the talent show she dances so gracefully. She's a natural dancer.

    8. Laudys on said:

      I couldn't understand why the teacher was hell-bent in making Belinda feel miserable. Obviously the little kid wasn't happy, how couldn't she see that?Also, the illustrations were pretty. Nice style. But I think there was a page missing somewhere since the spreads weren't next to each other. Maybe the author prepared them that way and later when the book was armed a page needed to be added, throwing everything out of place?

    9. Erin Chambers on said:

      Teaches that you can take something about yourself that isn't "perfect" and turn it into something wonderful. Don't let what someone else says or thinks bring you down about it , embrace it and turn it into something positive.

    10. Jenny Forgay on said:

      The lovely Belinda began her story way before her trip to Paris. Your little ones are sure to enjoy Belinda reaching for her dreams. Great book to use when teaching your students "to reach for the sky."

    11. Beth on said:

      I read this book to my PreK kids and when the character named Camille was introduced, I was beyond excited because there was a little girl in one of the classes named Camille - and she looks like the character. Perfect. Rare reading magic.

    12. Julie on said:

      As someone with big feet, I appreciate Belinda's determination to overcome stereotypes. How dare her teacher make her the clown. Hooray for Belinda's performance! (If only I could dance but at least my feet help me in tennis.)

    13. Teri on said:

      blah! I really didn't like how this little girl thought she "had no choice" but to be the clown like the teacher said, blah blah blah

    14. The Library Lady on said:

      I dance ballet too, and frankly having big feet is NOT an asset! But I love the Belinda books and Young's message of doing something you love and letting your talent shine through.

    15. Stef on said:

      This could be an autobiography of Peggy Hill's long lost twin. "Remember the clumsier you are, the better. Just let those big feet do their thing."

    16. Jennie on said:

      Love love love this one - not just for aspiring ballerinas either. The lesson - don't let someone tell you what you are. Do what you're best at. I love reading this one to my kids.

    17. Boni on said:

      Amy Young's illustrations are fabulous. The original Belinda The Ballerina is still my favorite, but this one jetes into second place :)Adorable!

    18. Danielle on said:

      A cute picture book that reinforces the idea that one should follow their dreams no matter what others may say. A good read for young girls!

    19. Allison on said:

      Jordan's Mimi read this with her, and to watch her face (Jordan) as her sweet grandmother told this tale melted my heart. I love to hear my mother read, and I love to see my daughter love a story.

    20. Mrs Bond on said:

      Belinda is told to be a clown for the school talent show for her big feet. After the agonizing rehearsals, Belinda watches a beautiful dancer. She goes home every night and tries the dance herself.

    21. Joe Gardner on said:

      Belinda before she became a ballerina learning to make her dreams come true.

    22. Janin on said:

      It's a great story to remember to pursue what YOU love--not what someone else decides you should do. Good for her. (And that teacher needs a swift kick in the rump.)

    23. Ali on said:

      2-3 stars for this. I didn't like how the teacher treated Belinda, but I liked that she found something she enjoyed and practiced at it.

    24. Amanda on said:

      An entertaining book for kids with a great message Embrace who you are, you can do whatever you dream.
