This charming, energetic story shows the power of friendship through the teamwork of a lovably mismatched pair.

Luckily, she has a supportive and enthusiastic friend to cheer her on and help her realize her potential. This story is a relatable look at the ups and downs of trying something new, with an encouraging message about the importance of persevering.

Sweet, lively illustrations complement this empowering tale about learning to fall and to get back up again.
