I love this book! Lou loves adventures. She and her friends go on many make-believe adventures, and she's very brave. But when her friends suggest making a tree their pirate ship, Lou thinks of every excuse why she can't climb the tree. She's afraid. She's never climbed a tree before. Finally, with her pirate costume on, she works up enough courage to try. And the best part? She can't do it. She will have to come back and try again until she can. I loved that she couldn't just climb the tree. It shows the struggle kids really face with trying new things. And it talked about persistence and trying until you succeed. The illustrations in this book were adorable and completely appropriate. They added a lot to the tale. The kids' facial expressions were terrific. The text was placed all over the pages too because several pages has multiple images. This made the book more interesting to read. I'll have to get this book from the library, so I can read it with my son. It's too hard to read the eARC with him on my laptop. http://www.momsradius.com/2017/05/kid-lit-thing-lou-couldnt-do.html
