Gordo Goo by Ruth Neikirk is a fun and inspirational book for young children. The book is based on a boy named Gordo who plays basketball in school. The scores are tied but the coach has one last trick up his sleeve. "Give the ball to Gordo!" Gordo gulps a bottle of Magic Potion Number 2 and he's ready to play. With Pester Paul in his way, will Gordo come through and win for the Wildcats? And what exactly is in Potion Number 2? Find out in the thrilling and exciting book, Gordo Goo!

Gordo Goo was so much fun to read; it's fast-paced and excites you with every page. Author Ruth Neikirk has created a book that children are going to love. It's got everything a children's book should have; it's fun, educational, and most importantly, inspirational because it shows you don't need some magical potion to be good at something, you simply need yourself and that's it. This, however, may not be as simple when trying to convince your child of this, so why not do as the coach did in the book and create a magical potion with your child and make it as fun as your imagination can come up with? I'm certain it will give them the confidence boost they need and, in the end, it will enable you to prove that they only need to believe in themselves in the future. So what are you waiting for? Go grab the ingredients for your magical potion and let the fun begin!
