Gigi and her best friend, Frances, take their first dance lesson after Gigi reads half of a verse in Psalms about praising God in dance. With reluctant practice and awkward help from Tiara (her new dog) and Lord Fluffy (her not-so-cooperative cat), Gigi struggles to dance perfectly to God proud of her. Then Gigi learns that God looks at our hearts, not how perfectly we do things, and that God is proud of us when we are kind to others.
Sheila Walsh is a powerful communicator, Bible teacher, and bestselling author with more than five million books sold. She is the author of the award-winning Gigi, Gods Little Princess series, Peace for Today, Loved Back to Life, The Storm Inside, Five Minutes with Jesus and The Longing in Me. She is cohost of Life Today with James and Betty Robison. Sheila lives in Dallas, Texas, with her husband, Barry, and son, Christian.
In this book, Gigi's mother decides to sign up Gigi and her best friend Frances for dance lessons at a ballet studio. After all, Psalm 149:3 says to "Praise his name in dance," so what could go wrong with such a biblically charming idea, right? Well, for a fact, a lot goes wrong. Gigi discovers that she is not a naturally coordinated individual, and that to become a talented ballerina takes hours and hours of painful exercises, rehearsals, practice sessions, and stage presentations. And, although Gigi does give it a real effort, she does not succeed. However, in the process, she discovers something more valuable: God loves her even when she cannot do everything perfectly.
This is a comical yet warm story that is well written, with a fun and engaging storyline that can be enjoyed by girls from ages 5 to 15. Rachel Smyth, Christian Book Previews.com
