THE POWER OF YET by Maryann Cocca-Leffler. New York: Abrams Appleseed, 2021. 32p.  ISBN 978-141974003-9 hc. $16.99     PreS-Gr. 2     E PIC

Young readers will relate to trying out activities, only to fail and be told that they're not ready.  Not yet.  Luckily, the main character has a wonderful, wise parent who states that it takes patience, practice, and the ability to make mistakes before finally mastering skills.  The text rhymes and is easy-to-read.  Watercolor and ink illustrations are calming, but reflect emotion with just the right facial expressions.  This book about growing up is recommended for individual readers or a whole classroom at once.
