The Extraordinarily Ordinary Life of Prince: Everybody's Good at Something by Prince A Sanders is an inspirational picture book for children. The story follows a young boy named Prince who tries and tries to be as good as his big brother Andrew when it comes to playing sports. Unfortunately for Prince, he isn't very good, and the children at school make fun of him. One day, Prince's mother announces that they will be going to see a ballet show and that they all must wear their best clothing! At the show, Prince is immediately intrigued by the dancers and decides that he wants to be a dancer too. At his first class, Prince discovers that he is actually good at dancing and picks up the hard moves quickly. His mother and brother are happy that Prince has found something he is good at but his father and the children at school don't share the same reaction. Prince is once again bullied by the children. Prince's teacher, Miss Adriana, announces that the class will be performing at the local shopping mall, which leaves Prince feeling anxious. But with the helpful advice from his mother and support from his best friend, Popcorn the hamster, Prince takes to the stage feeling better. Will Prince push through his nerves and put on a good show?
The Extraordinarily Ordinary Life of Prince was a joy to read. I love books that are designed to inspire and promote confidence within children because I believe it proves to be extremely beneficial for them. This book has everything needed to show your child how to beat the bullies through believing in yourself and standing up for what makes you who you are. The illustrations are adorable, cute and colorful, and will certainly attract the attention of young readers. Children will be entertained when reading this book and will pick up on the lessons the author is trying to teach. The dialogue is simple and effective, which will allow children to read along and understand more easily. I enjoyed reading this beautiful book and hope to see more of Prince A Sanders's amazing work in the future. I'm secretly hoping there will be a second book where we see what happens to Prince next.
