Tina Tumbles is a fun, lyrical story with an important message woven beneath the storyline: teaching kids to get back up when they fall down, and to give it their all, no matter how many times they face defeat. These are messages that I hope to instill in my own children. Tina shows kids that with a little persistence and a positive attitude, anything is possible. --Shannon Miller, America's Most Decorated Gymnast, 7-Time Olympic Medalist and Co-Author of It s Not About Perfect: Competing for My Country and Fighting for My Life
Tina Tumbles is [Everly's] favorite book. She does cartwheels, and we go to baby gymnastics class. I got her to wear a leotard because Tina wears one! --Jenna Dewan, Us Weekly Magazine, October 2015
