Remarkable by Lizzie K. Foley

Remarkable by Lizzie K. Foley was published in 2012. This fun book is about a town where everyone is talented and intelligent, except for Jane. Jane is just plain ordinary. 

This story is really out there in a fun way. There are sea monsters, pirates, parrots, and lost musicians in town, which leads to a series of adventures for Jane and all the people of Remarkable. 

I liked that Jane was able to see why all of us are important in our own ways, and just because someone is gifted in one area doesn't mean they are gifted in all areas. 

This story is quite silly, and it is just right for a middle grade child. I think my grand daughters would enjoy this book. 

Read to a child today even if that child is you. 

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
