I can’t skip.

I wish I could.

Other kids are really good.

This little girl can leap, creep, twirl, skate, burp, slurp, and do all the other things kids love to do—except skip! But with the help of a clever suggestion from her mom, she soon finds herself skipping all the way to school. Ann James’s droll illustrations perfectly complement New York Times bestselling author Jane O’Connor’s irresistible rhymes.

Ready, Set, Skip! is an upbeat, lively read-aloud about learning that what you think you can’t do may only be a hop, skip, and a jump away!
