Trini's Big Leap

Trini's Big Leap

by Beth Kephart Author, Alexander de Wit Author and Wiiliam Sulit Illustrator

Trini seems unstoppable. At the gym, she is the highest flyer, the strongest gripper, the most spectacular cartwheeler, and easily masters any gymnastic move her teachers show her, always saying, “I can do that!” But when she tries to construct buildings out of blocks like her friends do, she discovers that some things don’t come as easily for her, which is frustrating and confusing. Through the encouragement of her friends, Trini learns the value of collaboration and trying new things, even when they aren’t so easy. An afterword by the founder and CEO of The Little Gym Europe, outlines why it’s important to encourage children to try new and difficult things.
