Singer, Marilyn Tallulah’s Tap Shoes Clarion Books (Houghton Mifflin), 201$16.99 PICTURE BOOK
Tallulah is already a ballet girl and she’s good at it. But when she is asked to try Tap dance at summer camp, she discovers what it feels like to not be the best one in class. Will she ever be able to enjoy tap? Maybe it will take a special new friend who feels the same way and they can help each other try new things.
This is a popular character at my library, with lots of cover appeal, and the Tallulah books are frequently checked out by K-1 girls. This is a great story about trying new things and appreciating experiences that you are not good at right away.
