Listen to clips from the audiobooks mentioned in this episode:

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—a story about a toymaker who devises a villainous plan to bring a doll to life. Bunheads is the first in a series of books inspired by Misty’s own early experiences in ballet.

Be sure to also check out Firebird, also written and read by Misty.

This adorable audiobook celebrates all the familiar milestones and moments shared by every single kindergartener, and includes an original song titled “Kindergarten, Here I Come!”
