Though Gruska’s prose could be tighter and the climatic event that changes the football playing boys’ perceptions of the only boy in ballet class feels utterly contrived, this is an important book to read with your child.

For Tucker, ballet “feels right to him. Like breathing.” His peers – and his Uncle Frank – think Tucker’s passion is weird and tease him. Though he has a supportive mother, Tucker sometimes “has to cry about [the teasing] at night when he’s alone.” When he enters Madame Clara’s dance studio, however, he feels at home; it’s a safe haven where Tucker can stand “a little taller.”

Tucker winds up reluctantly participating in a football game during which he scores a winning touchdown by pirouetting and leaping over his opponents. The jocks — his former teasers — cheer for him, and the book ends with the jocks taking ballet class to learn Tucker’s agile moves.

Any book that builds tolerance for those who may be different than the mainstream and gives permission to pursue interests that feels right for you is worth a read, and this book does a decent job of it. Check out Ballerino Nate for a similar theme.

Whether you were a BMOC (big man on campus) or a wallflower, almost every adult has experienced being part of the "in crowd", or being a social pariah. Denise Gruska's "Only Boy in Ballet Class" explores these themes in a terrific book that shows there is life after teasing. Every adult can relate to this, and every kid will (at some point) go through it. I bought this book for my kid to show that it's o.k. to be a ballet dancer, or a football player (or both), but mostly, that it's o.k. to be DIFFERENT. Self-acceptance, and doing what you love (in spite of what other people think) is the most important thing, and Gruska's warm and delightful book is proof positive of both. A terrific book for kids and adults alike!

Cute story. The part about the boy getting to almost always be the prince is completely true. I was even told by the person who runs the Nutcracker production where we live that even if there are only 5 parts for a certain age, they will add something to the production if a boy with ballet training auditions because they are so happy to have him and want to encourage him to continue.

I'm a ballet teacher and my son who is now 9 has had this book for since he was a toddler. He loves it. Very kid friendly. Great service, I received it on time.

Excellent reading for young boy dancers.

Wonderful for kids.

I found this book by a happy accident. I was googling boys and dancing and such for a friend and found this! A great story without sexism, dance prejudice, etc. A tad unrealistic and quickly paced, but what do you expect for a picture book? I recommend this hugely.
My son is nine and takes ballet classes. It is a very athletic past-time. The book shows that ballet is not just for girls.
