The Thing Lou Couldn't Do by Ashley Spires
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a free ecopy from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!
Blurb: “Lou and her friends are
BRAVE adventurers. They run FASTER than airplanes. They build MIGHTY
fortresses. They rescue WILD animals.” But one day, when they're looking
for a ship to play pirates in, Lou's friend has an idea: “Up there! The
tree can be our ship!” “Ummm ...” says Lou. This is something new. Lou
has never climbed a tree before, and she's sure she can't do it. So she
tries to convince her friends to play a not-up-a-tree game. When that
doesn't work, she comes up with reasons for not joining them --- her arm
is sore, her cat needs a walk, you shouldn't climb so soon after
eating. Finally, she tells herself she doesn't want to climb the tree.
But is that true, or is this brave adventurer just too afraid to try?
Another great story by Ashley Spires! Once anain encouraging kids to keep trying. Lou love adventures, but when her friends decide to climb a tree, she isn't so sure its the kind of adventure she enjoys, until she tries! This story is about having fun, and being confident, being brave, and trying new things. A great story for any child, and great lessons at any age!
