Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Nice picture book about Clorinda the cow. I liked its positive messages about trying our best and following our dreams. Clorinda wanted to dance ballet and although ballet isn't the typical thing that cows do Clorinda wanted to do it and she tried. I could see myself using this book to teach a lesson about always trying our best to students K-3.
Clorinda is a cow with an unusual passion for ballet. She practices, preservers, and at last has a chance to preform on-stage! Even though her big show doesn't go perfectly, the crowd still applauds. However, she decides to return back to the farm and teach the other animals ballet. This is a fun book, written in a poetic style. The illustrations are extremely detailed and quite goofy.
This beautifully written tale of Clorina is inspirational and encouraging. It is about a cow that wants to dance ballet. Of course, this is difficult to do when you are a cow. But she perseveres and works hard until she manages to reach her dreams. But things don't turn out they way she had hoped... This witty story is charming and contains a good message about working for the things you really want...and knowing when something just isn't going to work for you. The Illustrations: The artwork is beautiful and expressive. Nicely outlined and detailed, the pictures in Clorinda draw the reader in and enhance the overall story.
