She is imaginative, clever, determined, and in love with dancing. Am I talking about your daughter or Angelina Ballerina? I just watched Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps with my family and that playful mouse was such a delight.
Have you fallen in love with Angelina Ballerina yet? Available on PBS, this little mouse has made her debut in an all-new TV series! Watch Angelina dream of dancing like a real ballet star while solving life problems and bonding with her little sister.
Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps
Each episode has a lesson that is very important to me as a parent. I try not to allow my children to watch shows that focus on fighting or conflict. Instead, I opt for educational programming and Angelina Ballerina is a perfect fit with PBS’ Fall lineup.
Yes, she makes mistakes like other 8 years old typically do. However, Angelina is a quick learner and really captures the joys and frustrations a child faces while growing up. That’s why I love this mouse ballerina show.
Did I mention she loves to dance? My daughter wears her tutu while watching the program and has even started taking ballet classes because of how much she loves the show!
Be sure to check PBS for scheduling on when you can see Angelina Ballerina The Next Steps PBS KIDS!!
