Source: I received a copy of this book for my honest and sincere review and for my participation on the book tour.
About the book:
Baby Jaimie is in her first year of school. She has made a lot of friends and learned a lot of things. Now she will learn what it means to be a team player when she is in her very first play. Follow Baby Jaimie as she learns the lesson, there are no small parts, only small actors.
Baby Jaimie is in kindergarten and one day her teacher (Mrs Johnson) comes in and tells the kids they will be doing a play. The fun part is the kids get to choose which they want to do and its a tie between Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. Which will they choose?
Jaimie is excited about doing the play but her bubble is quickly burst when her sister, Kelly makes fun of her and basically scares her about doing the play saying things such as stage fright and forgetting lines. When she goes to school the next day what her sister said is in her head and she messes up. She is sad and disappointed.
Jaimie did an excellent job because she hit every emotion on the head. I mean who has faked an illness so they couldn't go to school on the day of a play or presentation? I know I certainly did.
Now will Jaimie realize her mistake in lying to her mother? While she manage to pull the play off without a hitch? Will she over come her stage fright?
This is a perfect book to read to children because it teaches them that there is nothing to be afraid of, being scared is a normal reaction and that if you try your best it will be okay and honestly as a parent you only want your child to try their best.
I look forward to sharing this with the kids in the school library.
