“Priscilla Superstar!” is an excellent children’s book written by Nathaniel Hobbie and illustrated by Jocelyn Hobbie and now it is shared in an audio book version! Priscilla is looking for something new and exciting to do. Priscilla tries to play ball, debate, sew, or do water ballet and meditation among other things, but there is something about each activity that is not for Priscilla. Then Priscilla’s friend Bettina calls her and they go to Princess Rollerina and Priscilla signs up for classes. However, the first day of classes does not go well as the clothes feel funny, and the changing room is cold and she finds it difficult to stand up. Priscilla learns valuable some lessons such as hard work and practice are important to be successful, each person plays an important role no matter how big or small, etc.

This is an excellent book to share with children as it encourages children to try out new activities. Priscilla learns that not everything is for her as she attempts several activities; however, she also does not give up when she finds an activity she does enjoy. Priscilla is disappointed with the role that she gets and she thinks about quitting, but she learns that her role is important and she puts everything she has into her role of being the Wind. This is such a great lesson for children to learn. I love the ending of the book as Priscilla feels like a star and so she is one! A must-have addition to every child’s library as well as counseling offices and elementary libraries as it has so many great lessons that must be shared with children beginning at a young age.
