While all of the other mice are hunkered down for the winter, Lucy is out enjoying everything the season has to offer. Try as she might, she couldn't get her friends to join her, and her efforts to bring snow into the burrow were futile. Then one day, she discovered ice skating and is convinced that she can change the minds of her friends. Will it work?
I want this book on my shelf for snowy days. Heck, for the whole winter. It is made for enjoying with a cup of cocoa or cuddled in bed before lights out. Lucy is the sweet star of the show and the illustrations are wonderful. It can also grow with your child. Toddlers and preschoolers may not get the cheese-y references from Marcell or in the pictures, but older kids and adults will. Put this on your gift list for young readers.
Lucy takes the center ice and steals your heart in this lovely story of friendship, perseverance, and joy.
Lucy takes center ice
Enjoy this as a fun, sweet story. The theme of friendship is pretty obvious, but looking at the story from her friends' perspective, it is also about change: trying something new and taking risks doing something you've never done before (ice skating).
