Tallulah's Toe Shoes. Clarion Books. 2013. ISBN: 9780547482231
Tallulah wants so badly to be able to dance on pointe. She tries and tries until the ballet just becomes too hard. Through her journey she learns through hard work and time, she will become a beautiful pointe dancer. There is no need to rush.
Marilyn Singer did an excellent job grasping the emotions of Tallulah and other characters in the story. The story had a beginning, middle, and great ending with excellent morals and lessons. The illustrations are very vivid and appealing to the reader. They go beautifully with the story.
I loved the book. I would recommend it to young girls who have dreams to become a dancer. Tallulah is a great inspiration to these girls. Ages 4 to 10.
