This picture book by Nancy Bo Flood, illustrated by Julianna Swaney, follows a girl born with cerebral palsy as she pursues her dream of becoming a dancer.
Eva longs to dance, but she doesn’t know what dance looks like for someone who uses a wheelchair. Then Eva learns of a place that has created a class for dancers of all abilities. Her first movements in the studio are tentative, but with the encouragement of her instructor and fellow students, Eva becomes more confident and her dream of dancing comes true.
