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!
Loved it!! This delightful rhyming tale teaches important lessons through a captivating story line, striking characters and charming illustrations. Children will take heart in the story’s clear message that if you believe in yourself, work hard and persevere that makes you a winner and someday you could achieve results of a magnitude you never imagined. Coaches and players will be reminded that every person on their team is entitled to be treated with respect and compassion. Furthermore, the author succeeds in illuminating the critical importance of valuing the potential of each individual in order to ensure the success of the team as a whole. Youth sports leagues everywhere should distribute a copy of this book to each of their coaches at the start of every season!
Such a clever book about the importance of having fun at sports and giving it your best . A great message for kids as well as adults. Really enjoyed the colourful illustrations and the emotions of the characters. Looking forward to more educational stories with Sami.
An adorable story with a life message that all kids (and parents for that matter) should remember. The wonderful illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to the text. A must read for all kids involved in sport and their parents. Highly recommended.
What a wonderful book for early readers. As a teacher I love the use of rhyming and the heart-warming message the story tells. The illustrations are fun and a creative way of enhancing the understanding that each young reader will take away from the story. I hope to learn about other adventures that Sami may embark on during her formative years! Well done!!!
