Summary:

Educational Themes:

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.
Little Kid Reaction
Our preschooler hasn't been a big chapter-book fan, but she routinely asked for another Tiptoes Story.
Big Kid 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.
Pros:

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.

Cons:

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.
