Misty Copeland’s Picture Book

Misty Copeland is Keeping Her Name (and classical ballet) Hot

with the Upcoming Publication of Her Children’s Book: Firebird


Misty Copeland FIREBIRDMisty Copeland became a household name with her recent commercial for Under Armour….check out the end of this post if you haven’t seen the ad yet…and it looks like this ballerina’s fame is only expanding. I already have my copy of her upcoming  picture book, Firebird, with illustrator Christopher Myers on pre-order.

Pre-Publication Praise (from Amazon.com)

“An inspirational picture book for children daunted by the gap between their dream and their reality.”—Booklist

“A poetic dialogue between an aspiring young dancer and the American Ballet Theater’s soloist comprises the text of this stunning picture book… which feature[s] full spreads bursting with color and excitement… A very successful collaboration.” —School Library Journal

LifeInMotionIn case you can’t wait until Firebird is released on September 4, 2014, you can already check out Misty Copleand’s memoir Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina, published in March of this year.

I can’t admit to having much to compare it to, since I’ve not visited too many websites of soloist dancers, but Misty Copeland’s site is awesome. Crisp and snappy…her media self-presentation is quite savvy.

I leave you with that famous Under Armour ad.

Happy Fan-dom Dance Lovers!!  ~ Ms. Linda
