Pearl's birthday skates have a single blade and learning to use them is harder than she expects. Pearl has new skates. They are real skates (not double runners), and she can't wait to try them. Pearl inches out onto the frozen pond. But instead of twirling, she topples. Instead of spinning, she falls -- splaaat! Pearl has new skates. They are shiny white with red tassels, and she loves them. Will Pearl ever skate in real life the way she skates in her dreams?

If you are teaching your child how to skate, you must get this wonderful gentle book. Great for preschoolers to Gr 1, this is a classic in my home. Pearl is a bunny who is so exited to learn to skate, but then finds it too hard. Her uncle shows her the patience she needs and she also learn a lesson about friendship. Lovely.
