The Tales Of Tiptoes Lightly

Summary:

Tiptoes, a faerie, and her friend Jeremy Mouse explore the Running River, helping their insect and animal friends solve the dilemmas they face.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The stories are very descriptive, and you can envision yourself traveling with Tiptoes and Jeremy. Each story has an illustration, which helps the preschooler visualize the tale, too.

Content Awareness Factors:

None. We look forward to more Tiptoes. This is a book used with Eurythmy classes. It might be nice to have a CD with it.


Little Kid Reaction

Our preschooler hasn't been a big chapter-book fan, but she routinely asked for another Tiptoes Story.

Parent Reaction

The chapters are short (2 to 3 page) vignettes, which makes it easy to pick up and put down, depending on your audience's attention span. Because the stories are self-contained, we can introduce chapters, but not expect a preschooler to remember a sophisticated plot from one night to the next.

Type of Book:
This is a chapter book that is, at its essence, a collection of short stories.
Educational Themes:

The implicit messages are about respect for all things in nature; the joy of discovery and imagination; and friedship.

Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 to 9
Recommended Age To Read Together:
3 to 8
Age of child:
Started reading with child 3½ years old.
Purchase Recommendation:
Buy! It's a great way to introduce the chapter book concept to young readers, and will be a book that middle-readers will enjoy a second (or third) time around.
