Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Penny is proud of her mother's running ability and takes a medal her mother won in a marathon to school for show and tell. Penny's mother "shares" the medal with Penny for helping her train. While explaining the medal to her class, Penny tells her classmates all the ways that she has helped her mother be a runner, like going to the gym to play while her mother works out or stretching out along side her mother before she runs each day. The story illustrates how families can involve each member in seemingly solitary activities. The colored pencil illustrations seem rather static looking and uneven in their portrayal of Penny who looks five years old in some drawings and older in others, while the text is clear enough for preschoolers. 2003, Breakaway Books, Ages 4 to 6.
