"Twinkle Toes" is very typical of what one would expect from a Karen Katz board book. Many parents will find these books to be the ideal tool for pleasing their literary-minded toddlers. :-)

Twinkle Toes - a little too "pink" for mommy, but baby loves it. Mommy rating would be more of a 2. The touch and feel aspect of the book is not very interesting. There are really just 2 different textures in different colors. I think they are more interesting visually than tactilely because at least they are sparkly. Ends with them going to sleep so it has a bedtime component as well. What my daughter loves about this book: each dancing girl has animal friends! Also hop-hop-hopping and tap-tap- ...more

I loved this book. Each page talks about all the things you can do on your feet, dance, hot, tap, leap ect. All the pages are very bringt. There is rhyming in this book which is great for young children to hear. This book is more of a girly book but I sitll think it would be great for the classroom.

My daughter always loves Karen Katz books (because she LOVES lift the flap books). This is a touch and feel book rather than a lift the flap. She didn't seem to love it QUITE as much as lift books, but she still liked the pictures. Most of the textures were the same. They weren't that different from each other, so I think she became uninterested due to that. She liked the pictures though.

An adorable toddler ballerina twirls and whirls her way through this eye-catching book that your little ones will love to touch and feel.

Perfectly captures the wonderful feeling that dance brings to girls and boys!

Just when I think we are graduating out of the board book area of the library...our oldest picks this one out "for her little sister." I didn't think they'd enjoy this book that much, but they loved the "touchy-feely" aspect of the book, rushing to touch the various textures in the costumes.
