To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book is over-rated. Each story is only three or four sentences long. I looked at the picture and thought it was the beginning of the story, but no, it is the WHOLE story.
I don't think you can teach young kids what is "Persisted" by these super short stories. The stories goes like this: there is a girl named XXX, some people believe they cannot do XXX, they did it anyway and succeeded. You can only find the word "persisted", but not any meanings of it in the stories.
Maybe this book is appealing to adults, but not to your average 4 to 8 year old. Too many facts presented in totally unengaging ways. It shows how difficult it is to write a great children's book. This is certainly not one. Chelsea Clinton may have her talents, but children's author is not one of them.
I am so frustrated right now. Bought this for a gift, however, the book jacket is so wrinkled, I'll have to go elsewhere to buy another copy. I am a teacher, so I'll add the wrinkled copy to my classroom library, it's just I thought I'd purchased such an easy gift. Oh well.
