Lucy the Ant Ballerina is a story I wrote for my eldest daughter Leah. She asked me to to tell her a story about an ant, and then added the difficult part; this ant must be a ballerina.
I made up the story as I went along, and when it was done, she had enjoyed it so much that I decided to write it down. Of course, now we needed to get it illustrated, and just by some stroke of fortune, my wife is an artist.
What you see is the result of our combined effort (with a few drawings and lots of comments from Leah)
This story is about an Ant who feels different from other ants in the Nest. She Dreams. One day she discovers that the little girl who lives in the big house is learning Ballet. Lucy watches her and starts to learn how to dance.
This is a story about being different from those around you and about learning to dream.
