The story of Lettice started off as her being a normal rabbit who was tired of being a rabbit and wanted to dance. One day she had found a sign on a tree that had auditions for dancers, so Lettice went. When she arrived she saw many dancers dressed in costume, so she thought i need to go buy one. Unfortantley none of the normal people clothes didn't fit her, but thankfully she found a dolls clothes that fit just right. As she learned to dance she became very good at what she did. It was time for the dance recital and she couldn't wait. Her family was there to watch what she had learned while she has been in dance class. After the show Lettice felt great, just like a "star". When she arrived at home that same night her parents were very proud of her but weren't very proud of Lettice's attitude, she was a little stuck up. At the end of the story Lettice decided that being a Rabbit was the best thing for her and that she couldn't have been any happier.
This book is a great book for a various age of children. It's a very cute book and that teachers children to be happy with the person that they are.

Being a former ballerina myself, this book was one of my favorites. It was all about a tiny rabbit named Lettice and her dreams of becoming a ballerina. To her surprise, she conquered her dream and even performed in the recital with all the other students. Not only did she perform, but she was the star! Though her new found fame was fun, she soon realized that being a bunny was much more fun than being a ballerina. This is a cute story to show kids that no matter what dreams you master, you should never forget where your roots are. ( )

This is a cute book for young children to read. This story is about a Lettice, young rabbit who sees a picture of a ballerina and dreams of being one one day. Lettice takes lessons and even stars in the end of the term dance recital. Her whole family comes to watch and she is nervous. Once the show is over she expects her family to wait for her but they don't. Her brothers don't think that she wants to attend a picnic because she is a star. Lettice soon realizes that being a star isn't as important of being who she really is. She takes her ballerina outfit off and joins her family for the family picnic. This is a great story about following dreams and realizing who you are. ( )

Lettice dreams of becoming a ballerina. She leaves home and goes into town to go to dance class. Lettice becomes the star of the show, her family come out to watch and support her but leave without her. Lettice returns home and finds out being a rabbit is the best thing in the world, not being a ballerina. This is a great book to read to children about dancing. Also great to teach them that just because you may think something is better it might not always be. ( )

Lettice: the Dancing Rabbit by Mandy Stanley is about a rabbit named Lettice who dreams of becoming a dancer. She sets out to accomplish her dream, and works hard to get what she wants. The progression of the story starts out well, but becomes confusing towards the end of the story. The chosen ending does not fit with the characters and makes no sense when placed after the rest of the story. The pictures work well with the story; helping to reinforce the text, establish the setting and provide some asides. Unfortunately, the bright, sparkle-covered book cover is misleading, and the pictures found inside the book are pale and unexciting. ( )
