What a lovely story, by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne, teaching children that they first must try something before they will know if they like it and are good at it. The story encourages kids to try other things such as sports and to find out what they love to and that they can be the best at some of the time. Children are encouraged to remember what they learned with questions at the end followed by answers. Great way to get kids talking. Cute illustrations. Five stars.
