Firebird: Ballerina Misty Copeland Shows a Young Girl How to Dance Like the Firebird

Written by Misty Copeland and Illustrated by Christopher Myers

In her debut picture book, Misty Copeland tells the story of a young girl--an every girl--whose confidence is fragile and who is questioning her own ability to reach the heights that Misty has reached. Misty encourages this young girl's faith in herself and shows her exactly how, through hard work and dedication, she too can become Firebird.
