Molly Rides by Adam B. Ford (Author) and illustrated by Brian Berley…
What’s the book about?
“Molly was a skier. She skied the blues and blacks. She’d wake up early every day to lay down some fresh tracks.” So begins “Molly Rides,” a simple story of a young girl who takes on a new challenge and through patience and hard work discovers that she can have fun in the snow, regardless of what’s on her feet. With lyrical rhyming meter, AASI Certified Snowboard Instructor Adam Ford spins a story that he’s very familiar with—learning how to snowboard—and through it emphasizes both the work of mastering a new skill and the pure joy of snow sports. Award-winning illustrator Brian Berley brings the engaging text to life with eye-popping illustrations of Molly and her dog Bacon that evoke the history of skiing with a thoroughly modern touch.

My opinion: 5 stars out of 5.
Nice and short children’s book. Each picture on every page has a story to tell with all those little details that makes it great. After finishing the book, I just want to try to snowboard…Seriously, just grab snow coat, boots, and go snowboarding, even if just briefly in my imagination. It inspires me to write something about the snowboard champion, a kid in Alaska, not popular in school, but when it comes to snow, he is the pro. Just need to write it down to my notepad….
Netgalley has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
