Favorite of the Week - A Very Young Dancer by Jill Krementz

A Very Young Dancer by Jill Krementz is a rare and especially lovely book about ballet for young readers. The photographs by Krementz, of a young dancer who is chosen to perform in the New York City Ballet's Nutcracker Ballet, are wonderful.

Jill Krementz was a Vietnam War photographer, and she is the widow of Kurt Vonnegut. While I like all her children's photography, I especially like her A Very Young series of books.
