"This is the kind of book a child likes to hear over and over so he can repeat the sounds he has become familiar with. Each animal has its own sound, and they are different in French than they are in English." Review by Barbara Bockman

"In Clip-Clop, Tippity-Tap all of the animals on the farm have different jobs that they have to do every day.  There is a little horse and his name is Mini-Moi.  He isn’t even close to as big as the other horses.  All of the other horses do things like pull wagons and help the farmer plow.  Mini-Moi is too little to do those things.  He is pretty sad about that but in the end he finds something he can do.  That is good because I think that there is always something that somebody can do even if they are little." Review by Reader Views.

"Clip-Clop, Tippity-Tap makes a perfect choice for parents with children who are learning French or parents who want their kids to know we live in a multilingual world. Children who love stories about animals will definitely be charmed by this tale of a tiny horse with a big heart." Review by The Book Chook.
