Three-year-old Dakota dreamed of being the best ballerina in the world, but never in her wildest imaginings did she think she'd sprout wings and start to fly!
What happens to this beautiful little flying ballerina as she sails around her neighbourhood? Will Dakota remember which way is home?

We received this book to give an honest review.

A loved this book because Dakota could fly and now has decided she wants to fly as well. Dakota is a ballerina and wants to do her best so she practices and practices a lot. While twirling around she wishes she could fly! Who knew that wish would come true? When it suddenly happens she is so surprised and amazed, she can fly and her wings are beautiful.While flying around and enjoying everything, something comes out in the night sky and she is scared. Can she find her way home? 
I loved watching A's face as I read what was in the sky scaring Dakota. A was getting really hyped up telling Dakota "fly faster, hurry, hurry." I found this story to be cute and really brings out the imagination of a little girl.
As far as pictures go some of them were good while a face or two looked kind of weird but nothing that took away from the story.
