Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

The watercolor illustrations in this book are gorgeous and beautifully convey this story of two friends who brave a winter wonderland to show exactly what it takes to become true Olympians. Friendship, perseverance and preparation prevail in this humorously and child-friendly portrayal of overcoming failure and pushing through obstacles to achieve your goals.

Mom of Boys
Three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.

This is a cute little story of one who doesn’t give up. He takes his little bird friend along with him and keeps trying to reach his goal of the Olympics. I love his enthusiasm and ability solve problems when one thing doesn’t work. He tries many different approaches without discouragement.

Lemony Snickers
Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.
