Good book for encouraging a beginning reader. Repetitive text and simple words with fun illustrations. Seems like a real book, not just a beginner book.

A alligator trust himself and he thinks he can win the big race, but his friend doesn't believe him, at the end he did it. It's my favorite because this book tells you when you try hard enough you will succeed. - Jazzy, age 14.
