Great Catch, Sarafina! by Carol A. Bacon is a charming story that conveys a good message to young readers. Through the story of Sarafina, readers are taught how to keep trying to achieve whatever they have set their hearts on and to never give up. Sarafina is at the beach and it is a sunny, windy day. She is basking in the beauty of the day when she hears her cousin George calling out to her. He has a new toy flying saucer and he wants Sarafina to play with him. He tells her how to play and they start playing. Sarafina realizes that playing with the toy flying saucer is not as easy as she thinks it is. She knows it is going to be challenging to understand and play the game. Will Sarafina be able to learn how to play?

I like the message the story conveys and the tips at the end of the book on how to make a toy flying saucer are interesting and that makes the book good for fun and interactive sessions in classrooms. Parents can use the story of Sarafina to motivate youngsters and the book makes a fun bedtime story. The illustrations are vibrant and lively and they bring the story to life. This tale is for all those children who try hard to learn something new, and they try until they master the skill. Sarafina taking up the challenge of learning how to handle the toy flying saucer is encouraging and will inspire children to strive toward achieving their goals.
