TOLLESON, AZ, USA, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Glendale, Arizona author Amanda Malek-Ahmadi has just released her first picture book for children, “10 Ballet Dancers.” This charming tale, beautifully illustrated in pastel colors by New-Mexico artist Kathrine Gutkovskiy, shares the story of what starts as an ordinary day at a ballet school. The boys and girls in the class dance off the pages only to reveal a big surprise at the end of the book. This book, playfully combining dance and counting, is suitable for young children.

Amanda says, “Dance was my first passion. When people ask, ‘When did you start dancing?’ I respond, ‘the womb’ and giggle. I officially started dancing when I was five.”

Sharing what influenced her to be an author, Amanda says, “When I was in elementary school, we had Mister Tom share his book ‘Messy Cat’ during library time. I remember being so enthralled during the visit. And I still own my autographed copy.”

The respected review source at Kirkus says, “Ballet terms abound in this beautifully illustrated, advanced-concept counting book written by a dance teacher and debut author Malek-Ahmadi . . .A challenging, inventive tale that works best for young dancers."
