Tina Tumbles is a delightful story which inspires confidence, focus, and perseverance. After watching gymnasts flip across the T.V. screen, Tina wants to do nothing but gymnastics at all hours of the day. But Tina learns that even a cartwheel is not as easy as it looks. She just can’t land on her feet. Now it’s time for her first gymnastics lesson. Will Tina gain the confidence she needs to complete the skill without falling?
Charming, colorful illustrations paired with easy-flowing rhyme make this the perfect story for younger children being read to by adults, kids learning how to master reading skills, or even a person looking back at how they too learned their first cartwheel. Overall, an enjoyable read for kids and big kids alike!
