The Awesome Possum Family Band by Jimmy Osmond

What do you do when you're the only family member who really can't play an instrument?  Everyone else is in the band.  Possum Number Nine is so discouraged...

Regnery Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this ebook for review (thank you).  It will be available next May, so make a note on your TBR list.

This is a cute little book about the small possum who wants so badly to join the band.  He tries playing all kinds of instruments, making signs, and anything else that the others do, all to no avail.  His family encourages him and tells him to find out what he CAN do and it will all work out.

One thing he can do is sing.  He likes to sign along with songs.  And guess what?  That will work great with the band!

What touched me the most about this story is not only the encouraging family but the fact that Jimmy Osmond wrote the story.  It mimics his family life in a way.  The Osmond's all sang and Jimmy was Possom Number Nine.  

Why not share this sweet story with your little one and emphasize there is always a way to reach your goal if you try and stay true to yourself.  That's an important lesson in life.

Happy reading.
