Day and night, Callie Cat ice skates on the pond in her backyard. She loves to ice skate, loves it more than chocolate cake, more than going to the mall--more than her friends can understand. That is, until the Honeybrook Ice Rink announces a contest, and everyone thinks it could be Callie's big chance! Now Callie practices day and night. She wants to win the big prize . . . doesn't she? Sometimes doing something you love is its own reward, as Eileen Spinelli's beautiful story demonstrates. Anne Kennedy's exuberant art shows a unique heroine in motion.

Review: Callie Cat, Ice Skater

User Review  - Dominique St-pierre - Goodreads

What a perfect read for students as the 2014 Olympics get underway. My K students were able to talk about what they were really good at, and what gave them joy. Very simple, very cute, plain but effective illustrations. Read full review
