About the book:

“Mummy where is me?”

My son with his dark skin and his afro locs looked into my eyes as we were reading yet another book about ballet in bed and he asked me “mummy where is me?”.
 It is not unusual for my children to identify with characters in the stories we read, neither is it unusual that there are very few that look like them.  However for the past 4 years I have been actively building a library of fun, adventurous, books where my children can see themselves reflected, have their minds challenged and have a good giggle.

 My son and daughter developed a keen interest in ballet and are lucky enough to  attend the  wonderful International Ballet School in Stockholm run by Ms Gina Tse,  former Principal dancer for The Royal Swedish Ballet. 
At MbifeBooks we believe stories should power dreams and nurture inclusion.
We write stories that challenge stereotypes and  encourage boys and girls to explore their talents and interests, no matter what those may be. 
Ballet with Heart takes inspiration from my children, their anxieties, their strengths and friendships.
Louis, Ella and some fantastic new friends cant wait to share their adventure with you!

The book is illustrated by the amazing Sawyer Cloud with whom we wrote our latest release Our Favorite Things .
Each donation made is your book order PLUS you get exclusive gifts as rewards.  Once the book is published it will be shipped directly to you home.
