My grandson listened to me read the last line of Chessie and said "when is the next book?!"
This book is beyond great! As an elementary school teacher and mother of two young children I can't recommend it enough. It's not only educational but has a good message about the journey of finding what you are good at and that you may have to endure failures to get there. So much could be done with this in the classroom.
