Haven’t you always wondered what the ballerina in the music box does when you aren’t looking?

A ballerina in a music box loves nothing more than to dance. Her days are filled with joy as she dances for her little girl owner, and also pops out of her box for some extra fun and excitement when the little girl isn’t looking!

But when her owner grows up and isn’t a little girl anymore, who will dance with the ballerina then?

Dance with Me is a gorgeous story about treasured possessions and the memories they hold.

A beautiful hardback picture book for little kids
