Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
When Mom gives her young daughter skating lessons, the child knows that she "will be the best ice skater on my block." Soon she is gliding and on her way to becoming the "best skater in our whole class!" When fellow students fall down and giggle, she regards them with disdain. Annie, the teacher, tells the class that they will skate in a line holding hands for the Ice Show. Our little perfectionist thinks the assignment sounds too easy. She doesn't want to have fun, she wants to be the best. Without giving the ending away, it is safe to say that the protagonist learns to have fun, even if it means not being the best. This lighthearted "Hello Reader!" book illustrates an important point. Children, even very young children, are often driven by parents, coaches and themselves, in sports and in academics, to succeed at all costs. It is hard to have fun when all one worries about is winning. Adorable pictures capture the spirit of this diverse group of young skaters. 2000, Cartwheel Books/Scholastic, . Ages 4 to 7. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati
