Natalie has big five-year-old dreams for her future. So big, that her heart gets thumpy with excitement. Nat uses her very own words to tell about her hopes, struggles, and adventures. This makes the That's Nat! series perfect for young readers just ready for chapter books. Is There Something Better than Being a Star? Natalie tries out for the lead part in the Sunday school play. But not-so-nice Sasha lands the part instead. Being the star is all Natalie can think about---until something more important catches her heart.
