Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 1. A dancer with the Boston Ballet before she turned to writing and illustration, Isadora offers a captivating alphabet book full of big, beautiful pictures of young dancers in the studio and onstage. From arabesque to zipper, the alphabet rolls along with a variety of terms closely or loosely related to ballet. Each word or phrase is illustrated with a large pastel picture. Backstage shows four girls waiting in the wings, peering at the dancers onstage; jump features three boys bouncing into the air; makeup shows a costumed girl as she stares into a mirror at her heavily made-up face. The book ends with a helpful two-page glossary including pronunciations of unfamiliar words and commentary on the terms and their visual interpretations. Ballet fans may pick up some information here, but they will return to the book mainly to look again at the richly colored, dynamic illustrations of the dancers. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2003 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Visions of tutus will dance in readers' heads as they peruse two new ballet books. From former ballet dancer and accomplished author/artist Rachel Isadora, On Your Toes: A Ballet ABC partners jewel-toned pastel drawings with an abecedary ranging from Arabesque to Zipper. A detailed glossary describes the ballets depicted in specific pictures, defines terms and adds depth; for Zipper, for example, Isadora notes that dancers may make as many as six costume changes in a single performance.
