Little Bill is bored in the house and everyone else has something special that they are doing. When little Bills great-grandmother, Alice the Great, comes over to visit little Bill soon finds out that he is a great storyteller. This was pretty good book and I think it caters well to Beginning readers. I would use it to teacher my students about finding their own talent.
From what I read, this book teaches that everyone has something special, but what comes from within is the best thing to be special for. Dad has his jazz records, mom has her silver and brother has his baseball cards, but Little Bill has his storytelling, and grandma thinks that's the best, as do I.
