4.0 out of 5 stars Great for nervous young dancers. Aug. 3 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This story would be especially good for young, nervous ballerinas to read.
Nice cleanly made colour drawings enhance the rhyming story.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Wonderful Book! March 21 2012

I purchased this book for my granddaughter, who has just started taking ballet lessons, and we read it together.

It took me back to when I when I took ballet lessons as a little girl and I was able to share my experiences with my granddaughter as we went through the book.

It's a delightful story and very well written.

I now plan to check out the other books by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price May 8 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on

This book wasn't bad for the price. I bought it because my 5 year old takes ballet and she is interested in books with ballet or dancing in them. I like that the book had ballet terms because I like for my daughter to become familiar with them. I also like that the dancer in the story gained her confidence. My problem is dress code. Where are her ballet shoes? Why in the world would she go to a recital in socks? Also, although a pony tail may be worn at a recital, usually the hair is curled or most likely for ballet in a secure bun. I know I'm just nitpicking. My daughter likes me to read this book to her, so it's not a bad book at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute! Sept. 19 2013
By Shannon M. Mcgee - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A little girl practices ballet in class. She learns that hard work and practice is what gets a person ahead in life.

Tip Of The Toes is cute with rhythmic sentences that flow nicely. Adding dance lingo that most children from 4 to 7 will have to look up...but learning is a good thing.

Reading this in ebook format I feel there should have been more art. Jumping from one page art and then one page words just took focus away from reading.

Off the tip of my head, Tip Of The Toes, flows nicely except for the breaking up of pages words and art. The words are pretty and will be like by many little girls.
5.0 out of 5 stars Tip of the Toes! A beautiful very short girls story really or a boy that's interested in ballet too! Aug. 4 2014

I chose to give this ebook five stars for such a sweet and very short story of a very young girl who's about to have a recital and all the practicing and
and then being a scared to perform before an audience(a crowd) made this little gal very scared till her teacher helped her find a way not to be scared at
her rectal! But you will have to buy it to find out just what happens when she 's up on the stage,yes I liked it and thought it was pretty neat and she was allowed to do more than I was allowed to do on my first and last rectal and did probably much better than I would have done on my first and last chance
I had in ballet and tap lessons,etc. Great work Lily! By Angela
3.0 out of 5 stars PERFORMANCE JITTERS Aug. 3 2014
By Barbara Ann Mojica - Published on

Story revolves around a little girl who is a ballerina. The basic ballet terms are mentioned. Text is written in rhyme. Our young ballerina becomes upset when she finds out there will be a recital. Her dance teacher presents her with a box that contains a bow that she will wear. That gives her the confidence to succeed.

I was somewhat disappointed by the illustrations that did not capture the mood of the dance. While the book is targeted for ages three to five, I feel the text is too difficult to be fully appreciated by that age group.
