Picture Book Review: Princess Naomi Helps a Unicorn

Princess Naomi Helps a Unicorn by Once Upon a Dance

Princess Naomi Helps a Unicorn: A Dance-It-Out Creative Movement Story for Young Movers
by Once Upon a Dance (Goodreads Author), Ethan Roffler (Illustrator)
4 out of 5 stars

Princess Naomi is fed up with everything, so she goes galloping on her horse. They find a unicorn who needs help. The unicorn leads them to a mysterious cave opening, and only Naomi is small enough to fit inside and find what the unicorn needs.

I loved this cute story! Naomi is so brave and smart to help the unicorn, and the whole fairy tale setting is so fun!

Each page includes dance moves and steps that mimic what is happening in the story, so that you can act out the story as you read. Most of the photos showing the dance steps are clear, but I was a little confused about what some of the movements were supposed to look like. I guess you could just make it up, or interpret the photos to be whatever movement you wanted. I would probably understand it better if I knew anything about ballet or dance.

I loved the cute illustrations! The soft art style is so beautiful, and the colors are bright. The designs for the characters are really adorable and sweet. I like the fuzzy kind of art.
