On Its Way



"Misty Copeland, the acclaimed ballerina, is known for two things: being only the third African-American female soloist in the history of American Ballet Theatre (the first in two decades), and for not starting ballet lessons until the age of 13, even though most professional ballerinas began training almost as soon as they could walk. Firebird, her first picture book, will inspire budding dancers, but her story (told with stunning illustrations by Christopher Myers) is perfect for any young reader who needs to be reminded that 'your beginning's just begun.'"

In her debut picture book, Misty Copeland tells the story of a young girl—an every girl—whose confidence is fragile and who is questioning her own ability to reach the heights that Misty has reached. Misty encourages this young girl's faith in herself and shows her exactly how, through hard work and dedication, she too can become Firebird.

Lyrical and affecting text paired with bold, striking illustrations that are some of Caldecott Honoree Christopher Myers's best work, makes Firebird perfect for aspriring ballerinas everywhere.
