Great illustrations, topical, well written storyline, and hits home for everyone, whether you are a child, parent, or coach. Everyone can learn from this book. Sami is 99 percent of the children involved in youth sports, they just want to play the game. Parents and coaches can learn more from this story than the children themselves. Can't wait for Sami's next adventure
What a great book! The illustrations are wonderful, the colours are vibrant, it is funny, and the characters are adorable! The message of the importance of having fun and friendship is clear throughout the story. Children will no doubt love Sami, her determination and positive attitude shine through the book! Bring on softball season!
Other people have described this as "adorable" and "delightful". They're right. But I'd add "absolutely charming" too. The story is touching and meaningful, the text is fun, the illustrations are really cute. You end up falling love with little Sami. I hope coaches read this, as well as parents and kids.
