Gracie La Roo by Marsha Qualey
Gracie LaRoo is a synchronized swimming pig extraordinaire! Follow Gracie as she shoots for the gold medal; uses her dazzling moves in a Piggywood movie; visits her old school and shows her former coach just how hard synchronized swimming can be; and captivates a cruise ship audience with her signature spins. This easy-to-read, beautifully illustrated chapter book by seasoned author Marsha Qualey will make new readers squeal with delight as they learn about the marvelous, the amazing, the pig-tastic Gracie LaRoo!
Gracie La Roo is a wonderful little book full of easy to read compilation stories. For early readers or read aloud, this book is just short enough to keep their attention span and long enough to leave them wanting more.
The illustrations have their own distinct style and remind me of several of my favorite popular books.
The storylines are simple, easy to understand concepts, each with their own ‘lesson/moral’. Throughout the book, we find Gracie stepping up to the plate and working out her problems step by step to help those around her.
