    1. This realistic fiction, though cartoon-y in regards to its artwork, encourages the concept of allowing yourself to be free. This relates to a free mindset, free choice of self, and the freedom of differing ideals. A common occurrence in books like these is the stereotypical gender roles that children are expectd to follow along with. Any deviation from these guidelines or moments where the child allows themself to come as they are met with negative outcomes, rather than praise for being yourself [...]

    2. A cute story I read because it is listed under diverse book. I will read it to my class, because it celebrates us all and breaks stereo types for girls.

    3. Funny and sweet book. The character's lack of elegance and grace leads to funny results. Don't try her moves at home near a fishbowl!

    4. Awesome read. Cute illustrations and story. Great message for any age--just be yourself! Loved this book.

    5. This book is all about identity, as it follows a little girl that does not quite fit in to the role society or the people around her wants her to fit into. It is a book about this girl finding herself, and finding her identity. This book has a very obvious theme of identity, and could be used in a classroom of higher reading level (such as a middle school class) to SHOW them identity formation and what identity is. Sometimes, a teacher should revert back to easier texts to explain a theme that w [...]

    6. This is a great book for the little girls who aren't princess ballerinas - or anyone else. Tomboy Emma gets a package in the mail from her favorite uncle and there's a ballerina outfit inside. Because she loves her uncle, Emma tries and tries to be a ballerina, but it just doesn't fit her personality. When Uncle Leo arrives, Emma shows off her new interpretation of ballet. This is a funny and endearing story that celebrates individuality.

    7. This book is funny as Emma tried to be like a ballerina, after Uncle Leo sent her a ballerina outfit. The theme of this book is to "be yourself" like Emma. She danced at the end until she knocked over the fishbowl. I like this book because girls do not always need to be ballerina they can also enjoy other hobbies.

    8. I appreciated the intent of this story, but since tutus definitely ARE my daughter's style, she couldn't quite identify with, "Get rid of everything glitzy and sparkly, and just be you!" See, she IS glitzy and sparkly. Still, it was a fun story and the pictures were very entertaining.

    9. Rolking romp when a tomboy receives a ballerina outfit as a present. A bit of a tongue and cheek look at society's expectations and delightful individuality. Emma's magnetic personality and the charming illustrations make it a book worth reading again and again.

    10. What was Uncle Leo thinking sending Emma a ballerina outfit? She loves pirates and exploring, not pink tutus and dance shoes. But don't worry, everyone has advice for Emma on how to be a ballerina. Suffice it to say that Emma is about as graceful as me.

    11. I like the message about finding your own way of enjoying things. Though I suspect the author has never been in a ballet class. Once you've wobbled home from an hour's worth of feeling muscles you've never even known you HAD,you never think of ballet the same way again!

    12. I'm glad to read that Clara liked this, because it does pair so well with Dahlia. Long live creative gals who may or may not be pink and frilly!

    13. Not sure why this is a rainbow book, as tomboys are not necessarily lesbians, but the story is cute and fun. Illustrations are comical.

    14. Very cute story about a little girl who dances to the beat of her own drum, even at the risk of disappointing someone she loves dearly. Funny too :)

    15. My daughter laughed so hard while I was reading this that she completely ignored the cocoa-whatever cereal in front of her.

    16. Very cute and funny. Emma is great, and I laughed when Uncle Leo explained the mix-up. (And again when Emma danced into the fishbowl.)

    17. Tomboy Emma receives a ballerina costume for her birthday - what is a red cowboy boot wearing frog chaser to do?

    18. I enjoyed reading this story to my girls. I liked how the girl in it tried to make the best of the gift she got even though she really didn't like it. Sweet story.
