The award-winning creators of New York Times bestsellers What Do You Do With an Idea and What do You Do With a Problem return with a story of a child who isn’t sure what to make of a chance encounter—then discovers that when you get brave, take chances, and say yes to new experiences, amazing things can happen.
In this story, a child is visited by his first chance―and not being sure what to do with it, he lets it go. Later on, when a new chance arrives he reaches for it, but this time he misses and falls. Embarrassed and afraid, he begins ignoring each new chance that comes by, even though the truth was that he still wanted to take one…
I’m a huge fan of Kobi Yamada’s and Mae Besom’s books. I love their illustration style and how they take an abstract concept like taking a chance and present it in a friendly, approachable manner that’s conducive to discussion. The story captures the feeling behind wanting to take chances when they come your way but also the worry associated with messing them up.
