Tallulah's Soloby Marilyn Singer
Synopses & Reviews
It\'s natural to feel a little nervous about going to the doctor. But this book\'s concrete and kid-friendly approach will put everyone\'s fears to rest. Join three children and their parents as they visit their pediatricians for a typical checkup, and learn all about the different tools doctors and nurses use. Upbeat illustrations featuring a diverse cast of characters are paired with a breezy rhymed text that reassures young readers—and their grownups—by guiding them through a physical examination step by step. Includes an author\'s note.
"Tallulah, the aspiring ballerina whose tutu tunnel vision led to a meltdown in Tallulah's Tutu, is as determined as ever to achieve her dancing dream. But when her brother, Beckett, who does nothing but pick his nose and goof off in ballet class, wins a bigger role than she does in a production of The Frog Prince, Tallulah is seriously chagrined. Though Tallulah's turnaround is a tad hasty, Singer conveys her initial frustration and disappointment with authenticity, while Boiger's gouache and watercolor art is as fluid and graceful as a pirouette. Ages 4 — 8. Illustrator's agent: Marcia Wernick, Wernick & Pratt." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Ballet and sibling rivalry meet head on in this sweet companion to Tallulahs Tutu, in which headstrong ballerina Tallulah dreams of performing a solo in a ballet performance until her little brother begins dance class and disrupts her plans, from Marilyn Singer, lushly illustrated by Alexandra Boiger.
Ice cream truck jing-a-linging Nine phones ringing, ten horns beeping In the stroller Baby's sleeping.
Will anything wake up that snoozing baby? Follow the red stroller through the cacophony of the city and find out! Rhythm, rhyme, and lots of noisy onomatopoeia from premier children's poet Marilyn Singer, coupled with chaotic, colorful art from an acclaimed European illustrator, make this a rowdy read-aloud, with plenty of things to find and count on every spread.
Tallulah is certain she will have a solo in her dance schools upcoming performance of
The Frog Prince. After all, she is now an excellent ballerina. And shes proud that her
little brother, Beckett, has started taking ballet too, even though he spends most of his
time goofing off.
But then Tallulah gets an unexpected surprise . . . and not the good kind. Whats a
ballerina to do when everything does not go as planned?
Ballet and sibling rivalry meet head-on in this fabulous follow-up to Tallulahs Tutu.
