Description

Pamela Duncan Edwards (ww. ameladuncanedwards. This book is a delight to read aloud.

Pamela Duncan Edwards (ww. net) grew up in northern England and now lives in the Washington, . area with her husband and two sons. Her father wrote children's stories for magazines in England and his love of children's literature was a huge influence on her. Pamela taught preschool for eleven years in England before becoming a children's librarian when she moved to the United States. The children at my story time loved it. Mimi is a great role model; she tried-and tries-and tries to get in to see Swan Lake and finally succeeds not only in seeing it but in performing in it. Joy all around.

A ballet-loving swan wins acclaim when she manages to join the other dancers in a performance of Swan Lake. I must say, I probably enjoyed reading this story more than my students enjoyed listening to it. (We all loved it!) It is nice to find a book written based upon the ballet "Swan Lake" that children can relate to.

Funny Books for Kids. Honk! the Story of a Prima Swanerina. By (author) Pamela Duncan Edwards.

Pamela Duncan Edwards was born in Britain. Her father was in the army and didn't see her for the first three years of her life. She grew up loving books and moved to America after her marriage. In America, she became a school librarian and decided to become a children's author.

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Mimi the swan drives her friends to distraction with her love of ballet. Whirling around the pond en pointe, she practices every day. Then she glimpses a production of Swan Lake from her observation point on a ledge of the Paris Opera House. They're all pretending to be me," she cries and resolves to see the production from inside the theater. Mimi tries to sneak in several times but is repeatedly sent away.

Our story this week was Honk! – The Story of a Prima Swanerina written by Pamela Duncan Edwards and illustrated by Henry Cole. In Beginning to Read this week we talked about the et word family (bet, get, jet, let, met, net, pet, set, wet). Our tricky word was quiet. Our theme was Bathtime and we played a fishing game – fishing for rubber ducks (each had one of our word family words on it). Our story was Once Upon a Bathtime by Vi Hughes and illustrated by Sima Elizabeth Shefrin

Mimi the swan is in love with ballet, and more than anything, she wants to attend the ballet at the Opera House. When she ends up on stage as a ballerina, Mimi's antics soon rocket her to stardom as the first-ever prima ballerina!

An adorable read-aloud about having big dreams, and not taking no for an answer.

I love this book. The story line really had the children's attention - especially as they have no background knowledge of the theater.

We were all asked to bring a copy of a loved children's book for a gift. This was my daughter's choice.

My students really enjoyed listening to the story as we learned about Ballet. This was a fun picture book that all students were able to get caught up with the story.

"Honk!" reminds me of those old Barbara Streisand films, "Funny Girl" and "Funny Lady," where the determined--but klutzy--performer becomes the star of the show. Here Mimi Swan drives her animal friends in the Parisian pond crazy with all her ballet practice. After watching a ballet with the pigeons through the Opera House window where she notices, "They're all pretending to be me," she does everything she can to get in, much to the agitation of the manager.
"Honk!" is a delightful introduction to ballet for youngsters, but be prepared to pronounce the proper French ballet terminology, such as "en pointe" and "demi-plied" (with an accent over the e). And while the title of the ballet is never mentioned, Pamela Duncan Edwards' sense of humor is not wasted on those who recognize it as "Swan Lake!"
I just read this enjoyable title to a class of second-graders in our school library who really enjoyed it.

Very good, funny and awesome!
We love it!
A good friend of mine lent me a copy of this book to share with my little ballerinas (ages 3-6) during our summer dance camp. I must say, I probably enjoyed reading this story more than my students enjoyed listening to it. (We all loved it!) It is nice to find a book written based upon the ballet "Swan Lake" that children can relate to. Through Mimi, this book teaches with a little practice and persistance you never know what might prevail. Good life lessons that any child can benefit from. A great book!
