Synopsis

"You must be good at something," said Miss Lucinda. "Everyone has a special talent."
On the first day of school, Miss Lucinda asks the students to share their special talents. Francesca is a star soccer player, Matthew can catch huge fish with his grandpa, and Candace is an excellent artist. It seems that everyone has something to share. But Jack is worried. He doesn't have any talent at all . . . or so he thinks.
 
Acrylic paintings that pop with energy and charm make this story by veteran author and illustrator Maryann Cocca-Leffler the perfect boost for any child who questions his or her abilities.

Youth Services Book Review

When the teacher has all the children say who they are and what they are good at – Jack just sits there listening and trying to think of something that he is good at.
