Tommy Can't Stop!: 11/30/15
Tommy Can't Stop! by Tim Federle is about a young boy who has energy to spare. Tommy's a kid on the go. He basically flings himself through life, wearing out his family.
His family tries everything and every sport to wear him out. He's just not interested. Thankfully Tommy's sister finds a solution — dance!
Given all the dance books aimed at girls — I mean really, how many ballerina books do there need to be? — it's refreshing to have ballet given as a solution to an overly rambunctious boy. There are, of course, men in ballet. Those men were once boys and they probably didn't discover ballet as adults.
