The Thing Lou Couldn't Do

The Thing Lou Couldn't Do
By Ashley Spires

Lou is brave and can do all sorts of things--but when her friends want to climb a tree to play, Lou isn't so sure about that and comes up with all sorts of excuses for not climbing the tree. Finally, though, she decides to give it a try. This was an awesome book! I loved the illustrations and the messages in it. I like how it breaks gender stereotypes (there are no princesses here--Lou plays pirates and might be a race car driver when she grows up, etc.) and shows Lou facing--but not conquering (yet)--her fear. This is a really, really cute book! I read a copy available through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

5 stars
