What do we love to read?


My Favourite Book by Mrs Clayton-Young

My favourite book in the world is Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild.  As a child I was mad about ballet, I loved learning how to dance almost as much as I loved to read.  Ballet Shoes is a book set in the first part of the 20th century.  It is about 3 orphans and the family they go to live with.  They all perform on the stage and go to auditions and practices all the time. 

Two years ago my sister bought me a beautifully bound copy of the book, as she remembers me reading it when I was a little girl.  I keep it in Violet's bedroom, hoping she loves it as much as I did.

I remember losing myself into this old world, and as soon as I finished the book I would start again at the beginning; I was always reading this book alongside other books I would choose.

I would really recommend this book.
