“On Tiptoes / De Puntitas” October 2018
Illustrated two-in-one children’s storybook
Value of the Donation: $5,000 US
Catalina Verónica Monterrubio, an acclaimed author, presents together with Book Bank USA a new bilingual two-in-one story book for children ages 5 to 8 y/o, beautifully illustrated by Gabriela García. In it, two stories are narrated: one tells the story of Sasha de Sola, Prima Ballerina of the San Francisco Ballet, from her early years to her present day. The other story, fictional, narrates the story of a boy that sees her dancing as a girl and falls in love with her and with ballet, thus choosing it as a career in hopes of someday dancing together with her. Both stories have a deeper, universal teaching beyond “ballet”, that focuses on overcoming obstacles by focusing on inner strength and perseverance.
