I loved this book for it's inclusion of diversity in characters as well as activities. It encourages a "try and try again" philosophy and is engaging to children with it's bright drawings. I would highly recommend this book.

Such a beautiful book! The illustrations are lovely and vibrant, with lots of diversity of skin tone, features, body types. The message is just right--encouraging children to keep trying, that they just aren't great at it YET. This makes me think of TFFF's commitment to building human capital. Great book!

I love the bright and colorful pictures. The characters are really cute and have great facial expressions which is great to tie into SEL learning about emotions and feels. I love that is about not giving up, even when things seem hard. This ties in well with character traits in our building such as perseverance. Loved the self talk about believing that you can.

I love this book! Our 15 month old was a little too young to keep interested for more than a few pages but I had to finish reading without him. The gentle reminder that there is always time to learn a new skill or ability and the gorgeous art make this a really magical read. A wonderful surprise in this book comes from the casual diversity throughout. Sometimes books make a big deal of showcasing a same sex couple, showing a full page spread of the one person of color in the pages, etc but this book is so full of diverse faces, genders, and relationships. I am thrilled for my son to see it normalized that men can follow their dreams to whatever they may be. Love this one. Great choice, Ford Family. Thank you.

Teaches about the power of yet. This is a great way to start or continue work with growth mindset. The art is awesome and has great representation of diverse people.

I love this book and everything about it. I’m an elementary school counselor and I will use this for guidance lessons in the classrooms to help teach growth mindset and also grit.
