A snappy story with a fantastic message!
This is such a fun story with a terrific message! I absolutely the lesson of perseverance, of believing in yourself, and not letting the opinion of others stop you. The characters are fun and make a great opportunity for silly voices when reading out loud. We really enjoy this title!

Fun story, great characters, big message
I LOVE this book and so does my 3 year old son! The idea of entering a big race with big, strong, fast competitors is so relatable for kids who fee like this in so many areas of life! The sweet little aardvark main character is so determined and just excited to participate, but I love that she does have a moment of doubt and worry that “maybe the others were right”...but perseveres and continues to finish the race. So many great lessons to talk about with your child...but it also stands alone as a great story! The pictures are also very appealing. My son now says “I’m going on my Big Race” nearly every day and how he’s going to have so much fun without any mention of winning or being the best, just DOING his best!
