There is not much to this book. Tricia is trying to find out what she excels at. She tries the piano, but her sister is really the better pianist. Then it is T-ball, but her brother is the real star here. Her classmates jump rope and Tricia is good at that too, but it is not her best "thing." Finally, she plays the saxophone just like her dad and Wow! now she has found what she is really good at—the sax. Part of the "Read It! Readers" series, and a red level book. The red level books present familiar topics using common words and repeating said in its patterns. The note to parents and caregivers has tips to expand upon the material presented and ways to assist beginning readers. The illustrations are done in a cartoon style, which may appeal to the younger readers.
