"The story follows a young girl as she practices her skating. The story has a great theme of growth mindset that showcases the importance of not giving up even if you fall. The illustrations by Nina Mata are adorable and capture the skaters movement beautifully. This is a fantastic book to teach young readers the importance of never giving up on their dreams." @jensbooktalk

Though I'm still a bit unsteady,
I let go. I'm feeling ready.
