Felicity's Dancing Shoes
This small "short stories" book deals with Felicity trying to learn how to dance properly (another thing young girls were expected to learn at the time), and problems she has since the shoes she is wearing seem to be causing her to be somewhat clumsy.
She manages to borrow a pair of shoes which seem to help her, but things don't go just as planned. She learns, though, that the extra practice she has been doing at home has been helping her dancing ability, and that dancing ability lies within her, not within her shoes.
The book also has a historical section and other material.
