About the Book:

Tommy bounces, and he leaps. Tommy clomps, and he bulldozes. Nothing tires Tommy out, and his family can’t keep up! But then his sister has an idea: could tap class be just right for Tommy?
This exuberant picture book, written by Broadway dancer Tim Federle, with illustrations by Mark Fearing, stars one very energetic kid who finally finds his place in the spotlight.

My Thoughts:

My daughter checked this recently released book out of the library and I’m glad she did. We read it several times before returning it and both of my kids loved it.  They liked it more than I did, but that’s fairly typical.

It’s about Tommy, a young boy that can’t sit still and doesn’t enjoy his family’s many attempts at tiring him out. It isn’t until he gets coerced into attending a tap class that he finds an activity he loves. It’s a fun story about trying new things and looking for strengths amongst your weaknesses.  It was released just a few months ago, so if you can find it at your local library, I’d suggest picking it up.  It’s worth a read to the kids.
