Misty Copeland presents Bunheads
In conversation with Radhika Jones
From prima ballerina and New York Times bestselling author Misty Copeland comes the story of a young Misty, who discovers her love of dance through the ballet Coppélia. Misty is so captivated by the tale and its heroine that she decides to audition for the role. But she's never danced ballet before; in fact, this is the very first day of her very first dance class! Though Misty is excited, she's also nervous. But as she learns from her fellow bunheads, she makes wonderful friends who encourage her to do her very best. Bunheads is an inspiring tale for anyone looking for the courage to try something new. Copeland discusses her new children’s book with Vanity Fair editor in chief Radhika Jones. Watch with your children!
The first in a series of picture books inspired by premier ballerina and author Misty Copeland's own early experiences in ballet.
★ “Few picture books feature skilled youth dancers and even fewer star a girl of color, but this beautifully does both while simultaneously conveying the joy dancing can bring.” —Booklist, starred review
