In Picture Perfect Jordan by Katrina Denise, we are introduced to a boy who has many talents. He could run fast, sing, play drums, as well as being a great reader and good at math. Despite all these strong attributes, Jordan was not good at dealing with challenges. When things were difficult or took more time and patience, he would just refuse to work any further and distracted himself with his friends. He also had these issues at home as well, but his reaction was often worse, ending up in angry tantrums. This problem also trickled into his after-school activities. Playing football, Jordan didn’t understand the plays that the coach was giving him, but was too proud to say anything. He did his own thing which ended up with them losing and his teammates getting mad at him. He planned on quitting football but his coach reminded him that everyone makes mistakes. He needed to speak up if he couldn’t understand the plays. It made Jordan feel better and he ended up sticking with it.
Picture Perfect Jordan is a wonderful book that I feel will be relatable to many children. I can remember having trouble focusing on things that I found too hard or took patience to learn. I was one of those kids that just gave up if I couldn’t get it, or if I lost patience with it. Math was such a hard subject for me for both of those reasons. So many children feel this way and it’s nice to finally have a book that those kids can relate to. I thought Jordan was a realistic and likable character, and I loved the illustrations. They fit perfectly with the storyline and are just so colorful and eye-popping. It’s definitely a book I would recommend, and I can’t wait to read more of Katrina Denise’s work.
