I can vividly remember the first ballet class I ever took. I was in the 5th grade and like most little girls, I’d been anticipating joining a dance class for the longest. Space opened up in one of my church member’s classes and my first night (it was a Thursday I believe) marked the first class of a decade long ballet hobby.
Reading Ahni and Her Dancing Secret took me back to those days.
The book’s main character, Ahni, has dreams of one day being a prima ballerina so she enrolls in a dance school only to become discouraged as and when the other students are more advanced than she is and not as friendly as she’d hoped they be. The girls laughed and sneered at her, impacting her confidence and driving the school’s instructor, Madam Sabina, to have a talk with her. Ultimately, Ahni was inspired to believe in herself and her dreams by using affirmations and acting on her new beliefs.
This is a great book for the little girl in your life, especially if she is dealing with confidence issues or is having trouble pursuing a new hobby. I love that the author incorporates using positive affirmations because it’s never to late to teach a child how to speak greatness over their lives.
