Read an Excerpt

Ordinary Mary was so very ordinary that you'd never guess she could change the world. This ordinary kid? She did! She changed the world!

One ordinary day, skipping on her way from her ordinary school to her ordinary house, she passed an ordinary vacant lot filled with ordinary bushes growing ordinary berries--ordinary blue and juicy, luscious lovely berries.

Well, Ordinary Mary picked the ordinary berries and brought them in a big brown bowl to Mrs. Bishops porch.

What? Left berries in a big brown bol on Mrs. Bishops porch?

That sneaky kid! She did!

This book was read in to an adult audience and it moved everyone in there. A week later, still amazed, a self-professed intellectual proclaimed I really learned something in that children's book.

This book has the most wonderful message, for people of all ages. A reminder of how paying it forward can really change the world, one person at a time... beautiful. Everyone should have a copy of this.

This story provides a wonderful message, although it is a bit long since the message repeats itself. The interactive functions were challenging to work until you figured out how to work them.

This book does not have activities as advertised, but still a nice book for the money.
