“Creative and enjoyable.” — The Horn Book Review
“Demonstrating his usual command of interactive design and using only brightly hued five-finger silhouettes, large dots, and directional lines, Tullet leads little hands in an energetic paper dance…an invitation at the end to go back to the beginning is well-nigh irresistible.” — Kirkus Reviews
★ “Calligraphic visuals have the energy of abstract expressionist paintings, and the increasing looseness of the brushstrokes, which land more splashes and blots as the pages turn, affirm the freedom of imperfection. The book’s large trim size and plentiful pages offer ample time and space for joyful directed play that builds in energy as it goes. Let the dance begin.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Exuberant fun from first to last, “Tap! Tap! Tap! Dance! Dance! Dance!” will be a useful recourse for indoor fun on rainy summer days” — The Wall Street Journal
