Book Review #1139
Ballet for Martha: Making Appalachian Spring by Jan Greenburg and Sandra Jordan, illustrated by Brian Floca
Rating: two stars (out of four)
This book was pretty interesting. I thought the authors and illustrator did a nice job of blending the historical facts with a fairly compelling story. I don't think young children will find this book engaging, it has too many words and nonfiction elements, but for people interested in the arts and ballet, they might like this book.
