I admit, we have had great luck with picture books lately. This is another book that we really enjoyed. The illustrations are cute and engaging. The message is about how there is a first time for everything and that first time may be scary but it’s worth going ahead because that is the way to learn something new. Like, for example, a first bicycle ride or a first dive into a big swimming pool. This message is something that the younger children can relate to easily. We own a couple of books in this series and they are all fun reads with messages to boost children’s self esteem.
