Cottontail Elementary School always closes out the year with the Gopher Games, an event-filled week with races, relays, and revelry. Nerdi and the twins, Artsy and Sporty, looked forward to these games because it gave them another opportunity to add a trophy to the walls of their rooms. Sporty was the only one who did not have individual awards from the Gopher Games. This year she was keen to win an individual event and add a trophy. Sporty decided to join the Chase even though she knew Nellie Pine, the porcupine, won it every year. This year it was all about the bees. Would she be able to beat Nellie Pine, win the Chase, and become the Chase Champion?
Place in the Chase: A Nerdi Bunny Brief by Aisha Toombs is a delightful storybook with an adorable message that will help children accept defeat graciously and will also teach them to praise the winner with a positive attitude. It will also make them realize that sometimes competing is not always about winning. Tina Wijesiri captivates readers with her bright illustrations and they are as charming as the story and make the Chase vivid. All the characters are well-sketched and memorable. It is a good book for storytelling sessions in classrooms and at home, because of the good messages it conveys to young readers. It is easy for children to understand concepts, messages, thoughts, and ideas when conveyed with the help of a story and interesting characters.
