When Betty the bunny is at home, she pirouettes and leaps with joy as her little sister, Bluebell, applauds her every move. That all disappears, however, when Betty is in ballet class – suddenly her shyness kicks in and her pliés shake from nerves. Will she be able to draw up enough grace and poise for the big recital?

Readers who’ve had to tackle shyness will be drawn to Lucy Freegard’s Ballet Bunnies, an utterly charming picture book about facing one’s fears and being brave. This heart-warming storytelling event takes kids along on Betty’s journey to confidence, followed by a bunny-themed craft activity.
