“Tina Tumbles” by Danielle Soucy Mills is a wonderful children’s book aimed at children who have a lot of energy and need to direct it into right things. A little girl Tina has so much energy that doesn’t want to sleep when it’s bed time. Instead, she watches TV with gymnastics program. After seeing different gymnastic elements, she tries gymnastics right on the coach and her bed. Her first trial is not successful. Seeing this, her mother takes her to a gymnastic coach and Tina gradually improves her gymnastic skills. I smiled as I read the book. At the end of the book you’ll find some practical advice from the author Danielle Soucy Mills, a gymnastics coach, on how to start gymnastics home. The book is accomplished by awesome illustrations which make it especially attractive and practical for children with interest in gymnastics. Highly recommended!

Good Book Tina Tumbles Vivid colors, lovely illustrations, and a very fun story created the perfect children's book. I read this with the six year old and she and I loved the story. It was lively and easy for her to engage with. At 35 pages, it was long enough to enjoy and short enough to read at one sitting. We both loved this book.
