Bright colors and the message of kindness, friends and trying is portrayed in sincere language in this beginning reader. Perfect for the beginning gymnast, reader or any child in your life. — Jeanette


Perseverance (and a little help from a friend) pay off for an aspiring young gymnast in this winning entry in the I Like to Read® series. Ella is in awe of Jan, the star of her gymnastics class. Jan can spin and leap on the balance beam. Can Ella? Her first attempt is a failure, and Ella is ready to give up. But Jan is a star at friendship too; and with her encouragement, Ella tries again--and succeeds! This is the perfect book for girls learning to read. The adorable, leotard-clad young gymnasts fill the pages with action; and the story offers valuable, age-appropriate lessons in kindness, sportsmanship, and how important it is to try, try again. An I Like to Read(R) book. Guided Reading Level D.
