Brontorina has a dream. She wants to dance. But Brontorina is rather large, too large to fit in Madame Lucille s dance studio. Brontorina does not have the right shoes, and everyone knows you can't dance without the proper footwear. Still, Brontorina knows, deep in her heart, that she is meant to be a ballerina. With support of her teacher and classmates Brontorina achieves her dream.
At first read it may appear to be simply a story about following your dreams however at its heart 'Brontorina' is a story about inclusion. There is as much learning for the teacher or parent reading this as there is for the child. Brontorina wasn't too big for the studio, the studio was too small for her. With some adjustments everyone in the class is able to dance together.
