Callie Cat, Ice Skater
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.

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
