Sports Girl products are designed as a fun and educational way to promote self-appreciation and the benefits of daily exercise, smart eating and sleeping habits, self-esteem, and overall healthy life skills for girls. The books and dolls in the series encourage all children to dream big and work hard to achieve their goals-and have fun while doing so. M. C. loves to dance ballet, but the big recital is only three weeks away and she's having a hard time keeping focused-and remembering what seem to her to be a zillion dance steps. Will she chasse gracefully across the stage, or will she stumble and fall? Readers will discover how M. C. prepares for the recital and learn fun facts about ballet and dance in this story, a 640 Lexile book. The Go! Go! Sports Girls app is available on iTunes.
