From the team that created the bestselling I Wish You More, this is a motivational picture book for exceptionally OK children!

In this clever and visual play on words, OK is turned sideways, upside down, and right side up to show that being OK can really be quite great.

With spare yet comforting illustrations and text, bestselling duo Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld celebrate the real skills and talents children possess, encouraging and empowering them to discover their own individual strengths and personalities.

Whether OK personifies an OK skipper, an OK climber, an OK lightning bug catcher, or an OK whatever there is to experience, OK is an OK place to be. And being OK just may lead to the discovery of what makes one great.

I love how Amy Rosenthal uses her imagination to create such literature. The "OK" book is wonderful. It lets the reader know it¿s ok to just be ok at something. Being average is ok. It also shows that being the best at something take a lot of practice, and this is a great lesson to teach children.

This is a really nice picture book. The theme of the book is very creative. It's an easy picture book. :)

This is a great book to discuss self-esteem and that is it "okay" to not be perfect at everything. This book follows a stick figure in the shape of the letters of the word "OK" through various activities that the main character is just "okay" at performing such as tightrope walking, playing baseball, diving, hiding, swinging, and sharing. It is a heart warming book that will bring a smile to your face.

This book kind of frustrated me. It lists a ton of things the narrator isn't good at, and then insists that it's okay that said narrator isn't good at anything, and will eventually find something at which s/he is good. Kids are good at lots of things, not just one, and they should try to excel at things they're interested in, not just placate and not care. Try harder and have fun at it- don't just sit back and settle for mediocre!

Sammy shook her head now the scaly figure wadnt just everywhere there were ones like it but different fluffy feather all kinds of skin textures but not just that they all loojed paranormal. Sammy still had that eerie feeling. She heard an eerie voice. Then she saw a shadow pass by her door. The voice called "Its time for u to join the Destiny Seekers." Then darkness surrounded her. She screamed but all that came was a feeble mewling squeak.

We love this book in our family! Anyone who has enjoyed another book by this author would not be disappointed. I know several people get upset by the price of some of the kids books, but this one I considered a good value or investment. It is one we will treasure over and over again, and share with little friends. It is not quickly outgrown. Although it is probably directed mostly at preschool age, my seven year old and I read it over and over again. I would recommend this without hesitation for anyone!
