A Ballerina Book: “Tallulah’s Tap Shoes”
“Tallulah’s Tap Shoes” is a children’s picture book written by Marilyn Singer and illustrated by Alexandra Boiger. It was published in 2015 by Clarion Books.
Tallulah and her brother, Beckett, were on their way to dance camp. Tallulah was looking forward to her ballet classes (“I’m a ballet girl”) but not so much the tap classes. She would be a beginner in tap class and was afraid she would be the worst one. In the end, Tallulah learned she didn’t have to be the best at every dance and even made a new friend who was as good a tap dancer as Tallulah was a ballet dancer. I loved seeing familiar ballet words in this book and learning new tap words. Beverly
