|On Your Marks, Get Set, Go!: Ladi, Liz & Cam
written by Julia Lassa, illustrated by Merve Terzi
Liz is a lizard, Cam is a chameleon and Ladi is a little girl.
The three of them are best friends. On a warm sunny day, they sit together on the grass.
Ladi is bored while Liz and Cami bathe in the sun. Sometimes boredom leads to arguments, and that’s what happens to those
three friends. They argue who is the fastest amongst them all, and so they commence a competition.
But they are so different, how can they find a fair running course that would be equally hard for all of them?
At this point, friendship comes to rescue as they design the perfect race course. Who is the winner? You would have to read the book to find out …
This is a sweet story with a very powerful message of acceptance, sharing, and how true friendship can overcome the differences between friends and even embrace and celebrate the uniqueness of each friend.
The illustrations are beautiful. So vivid and colorful.
This book is a true gem.
