Series: That's Nat!
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 Thats 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 aboutuntil something more important catches her heart.

Plus also, Natalie learns the true meaning of Christmas, a valuble lesson for our children today! The author does an excellent job of writing from the perspective of a 5 1/2 year old. The thoughts and feelings are believable and age-appropriate. The word "stupidhead" is used twice, showing Natalie's frustration. We used this opportunity to discuss how everyone has to learn appropriate ways to handle disappointments. No one is perfect. But at just the right time, through Jesus, God will teach us what is important.
L:isa Holt2 Stars Out Of 5June 25, 2009L:isa HoltMy daughter (age 8) enjoyed book 1, but was disappointed with this book. Natalie has a bad, selfish attitude throughout the book, which somewhat resolves at the end, but not fully enough for my daughter's satisfaction. Her biggest disapointment, however, was the repeated use of the word "stupidhead"; a word that would be a huge no-no at our house.
