Ava Flips is a short children’s book about a young girl who enjoys acrobatics and doing flips. The author is Ava Nebel, a seven-year-old child who loves drawing, dancing, and making performances, including flipping.
In this volume, colorful, lively, and charming pictures are illustrating the protagonist’s acrobatics in various parts of her house, such as her bedroom, the living room, and the yard. She practices flipping over chairs, over her dog, Dexter, and many other objects. Nebel also loves to dance, and just like her character in the narrative, she never gives up, even when she falls or gets hurt.
The aspect I appreciated the most in this volume was the writer’s style. Ava Nebel is very young, but she still created a story with all the aspects of an exceptional children’s book. It has rhythm, rhymes, and repetitions that catch kids’ interest. In addition to that, the phrases have big colorful fonts, and the novel is short, which can also help to keep the readers’ attention.
There is nothing I disliked in this publication. It’s well-written and professionally edited. However, parents must be aware of the risks for kids who don’t usually practice acrobatics since some of them might try to repeat Ava’s movements at home. Therefore, the responsible adult should inform the children that the character of the novel already trains gymnastics regularly, and the action of doing flips is difficult for beginners. Despite this, the book shows that if the kids have the determination, they will succeed for sure.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. It’s the story of a happy girl who enjoys flipping everywhere and who doesn’t give up. I recommend it to all the young readers, especially to the ones who enjoy dances and acrobatics. I also recommend this novel to kids who are learning how to read and write since the sentences are simple to understand.
