The OK Book
By Amy Krause Rosenthal
Illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld
Most appreciated by all ages!

This book is one of the most popular here in the Zion library. Why? Because of OK. Have you ever really looked at OK? Try this now - grab a pencil, crayon or marker and a blank piece of paper. Write 'OK' on it in capital letters. Now turn the paper a quarter turn. What do you see now? Is your OK gone, replaced by a guy with arms and legs? Pretty cool, huh? And that's why 'The OK Book' is such a hit.

Little OK is just okay at almost everything. He always tries his best but so far, he's hasn't found what he's really good at. But that's OK with him. He knows that someday, he'll figure out what he's really good at but in the meantime, he's having fun trying. What a great message for all of us, right?

If you're considering the 'The OK Book' as a gift, why not give a copy that's autographed? Read Between the Lynes bookstore in Woodstock has a number of copies available that were autographed by the author, Tom Lichtenheld. In addition to 'The OK Book', Tom has written and illustrated several others, including a favorite here called 'Everything I Know About Pirates'. Contact the store directly for more information.
