Today I’m bringing you a picture book review! I recently won a giveaway and I won a copy of Practice Makes Progress by Tom Tracy. I thought this was a cute story and I decided to do a mini-review of it. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
What’s the best the best thing to do when learning something new?
Practice. Practice. Practice.
Scoochie and Skiddles are cousins who are taking lessons to learn how to roller skate. They are nervous at first, but quickly discover the more they practice, the better they become. Learning something new can be quite fun, especially when done together.
Like other books in the Scoochie & Skiddles Inclusive Kids Books Collection, Practice Makes Progress features a range of diverse families and characters, including inter-racial and same gender parents. Our hope is that children are able to see families like theirs and families like their friends in the pages of our books.
This is such a cute picture book with a fantastic message!
I love how this book shows the importance of practice when learning something new. I think it’s a great lesson that you won’t necessarily be good at something the first time you try it, but practice can help you improve.
I love how diverse this book is. I love that it shows different kinds of families. It always makes me happy when picture books are diverse because I think it’s important for children to be able to see themselves on the page.
I also love the artwork in this book. It’s bright and colourful and a lot of fun.
