Mia and the Girl with a Twirl
Bibliographic information:  written by Robin Farley, illustrated by Aleksey and Olga Ivanov, published by Harger, c. 2013
Synopsis: Mia has a new girl in her dance class, but the girl doesn’t dance like the rest of them. Instead of putting her down, the teacher helps the girls understand that there are many ways to move and dance.
Rationale for the classroom: Students enjoy reading with this early reader book, but those who love dancing will enjoy the fun illustrations of animals in ballet class!
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.K.4 Ask and answer questions about unknown words in a text.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.K.7 With prompting and support, describe the relationship between illustrations and the story in which they appear
