Swan the Life and Dance of Anna Pavlova

Swan: The Life and Dance of Anna Pavlova is written by Laurel Snyder and illustrated by Julie Morstad. Swan presents in a picture book format the biography of Anna Pavlova who was a extremely talented ballerina. The beautiful illustrations drew us in the story right away, and the life of Anna is presented from her very first experience watching a ballet by Tchaikovsky, at the Marrinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, Russia, when she was a little girl. The story showcases highlights of her life until her final moments. 

Beautiful illustrations in Swan

Swan is a truly beautiful book and we were inspired to read the author's notes to learn more about Anna Pavlova. Celeste also searched YouTube to see some of the The Dying Swan ballet and found a recording of Anna herself dancing it. It was magical to watch her: 

Pierre the Maze Detective 

Pierre the Maze Detective: the Search for the Stolen Maze Stone is written by Hiro Kamigaki & IC4DESIGN. This is an amazing maze book filled with intricate details! Readers are invited to help Pierre the Detective with his new case. Mr X has stolen the Maze Stone. Each double page spread is a full maze with a lot of extra things to spot and extra challenges along the way too! It's a book that could entertain for hours! Celeste and I were mesmerized by all the tiny details!
