Firebird - Misty Copeland, Christopher Myers
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

This book is absolutely beautiful. I love the lyrical free-style writing. The imagery created in Copeland's words is gorgeous. She invokes pictures of "a dreaming shooting star of a girl" and "wrap[ping] our hearts careful as ribbons on pointe shoes". So beautiful. You can really envision what Copeland writes and it is magnificent. 

The illustrations are also fantastic. Myers really captures the precision and beauty of the ballerinas' movements on each page. Absolutely gorgeous.

The message is also beautiful. This is such an uplifting and inspiring book. I really enjoyed it. This book makes the reader really believe that he or she can do anything.

Fantastic. Well-done.
