Jocelyn loves her ballerina. She never takes it off despite her mother's attempts to put it into the laundry. When Jocelyn is wearing her ballerina she can twirl and dance up to the sky. It hugs her legs and keeps her warm.

Industry Reviews

"Hartry's delightful look at a little girl's love for her tutu captures a thread of recognizable truth that will soon make this a favorite story. Love is blind, which explains Jocelyn's enduring attachment to her tattered Ballerina, a tutu and leggings long past their glittering prime...But Mom insists Ballerina isn't appropriate for Aunt Judy's wedding. The Pink is better - that fancy, new summertime dress that Jocelyn must wear as the flower girl. What is Jocelyn to do? What if no one sees her tutu, Jocelyn reasons, as she puts it on under The Pink. Of course, her secret is gradually revealed - in a wonderful comic way. Children will love the story as much as Jocelyn loves her Ballerina, ensuring that, like all love-worn favorites, the book will be around for a long, long time." ..".convincing in showing the common childhood trauma of giving up a beloved object...the soft colors and charming scenes reflect a child's world, and one particular youngster's tiny triumph."
