Megan Owlet doesn’t want to play basketball, learn karate, or practice the violin. Every day she goes and cheers her brothers on as they participate in their own activities, but one morning she wakes up and realizes she’s bored! It’s time for Megan to find something of her own to do. After an unsuccessful brainstorming session with her animal friends, Megan stumbles upon a dance studio, and with an excited screech she begins to dream big dreams of whirls and twirls. Dancing is trickier than Megan expected, but with a little help from her brothers, Megan can do anything!

From debut author and illustrator Beth Anne Maresca, Megan Owlet teaches children to pursue their own dreams and to be brave in making them happen. This is a story about love, support, and family, and parents and children alike will be enchanted by its heartwarming ending and beautiful watercolor illustrations.

About the Author:

Beth Anne Maresca, as a child, drew at home, in the car, and sometimes under the covers when she was supposed to be asleep. She always wanted to work with children and studied elementary and special education at Providence College and received her master’s degree in reading at the College of St. Rose. Beth Anne is an artist who lives with her sources of inspiration her husband and four children in Tewksbury, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2—Megan Owlet has always been there to support her three older brothers while they're participating in their favorite activities. She was the loudest clapper, most enthusiastic cheerer, and was really good at getting the crowd going. But one day, Megan doesn't want to sit and watch her brothers anymore. She wants an activity, too. She tries things her brothers love—basketball, karate, the violin—but none of them is right for her. However, when she tries ballet, she finds that it's something she enjoys, but she's nervous because she isn't as good as the other girls. Megan soon realizes, though, that her brothers are there for her just like she was there for them and the love of her family gives her the courage to dance in the recital. Lovely illustrations in a light, pastel palette complement Megan's story, which is simply told, easy to read, and makes an effective read-aloud. It will be especially resonant with children who have older siblings and are searching for their own ways to shine. The themes of determination and individuality resonate with readers who will be cheering Megan on just as loudly as her brothers do at the end of the story. VERDICT A fine addition to most general picture book collections.—Paige Garrison, Aurora Central Public Library, CO
