Mia and her friends trick or treat in their tutus in their very first 8×8 storybook, complete with stickers.
Mia and her best friends are going to be matching ballerinas for Halloween! Matching pink ballerinas, that is! But when Ruby wants to be green and Anna wants to be blue, things get a little…colorful! Can the tutu-tastic friends get their costumes together before it’s time to trick or treat?
This book includes a full page of stickers to dress up Mia and her ballerina buddies!
I have been looking forward to autumn for a while and it finally feels real with a halloween read. This is a cute book full of friendship and working together for compromise. They little ballerinas are adorable as always and using this story going though the steps of planning and figuring out matching halloween costumes is fun and a good lesson. There is also a page to interact with stickers and design your own outfit at the end which is a one time event but looks fun.
