My daughter picked this book. She enjoyed the story and the challenge of reading a longer book. This was one of her favorites this year.


Another great book about not giving up!

This resonated more with my young daughter than my son but it was still a wonderful chapter book that all enjoyed. When you fall, try try again! Literally!

This is such a cute story. My 6 year old loves having her very own first chapter book!

This book helped build my daughter’s confidence in reading. Once she completed the story she felt so happy and proud of her accomplishment. It was the first chapter book that she was able to complete in one day on her own. The story kept her interest so she kept reading.
