Enter for a chance to win a copy of the book – signed by Sophia!
“Sophia’s Turn: Believe in Your Dreams,” is a charming children’s book about dance prodigy Sophia Lucia, who holds the Guinness World Record of 55 consecutive pirouettes. The rhyming story shares with young readers how she did it. The book is geared for ages 3-9, and I would imagine younger children will love it for the rhymes and the pictures, while the older ones will love it for the amazing story.
“On March 30, 2013, ten-year-old, Sophia Lucia – dance star, model, entrepreneur and internet sensation – stepped out onto the dance floor to attempt to beat the world record of 36 consecutive pirouettes. Little did any one guess she would far surpass 37 pirouettes and go on to achieve an outstanding 55 consecutive pirouettes, smashing the existing record and putting herself in the record books as the Spinning Queen.”
Most pages of the book include just a few words and colorful illustrations that would be great as a picture book for the littlest readers and an easy reader for beginning readers. The last page really goes into the story about Sophia Lucia and how to find her website. It ends by saying that “Sophia’s future is bright, and her example is inspiring for all to never give up on your dreams.”
You can order the book from her official website in hardback, paperback, or as an ebook.
