Reviews
Sweet Victory covers a lot of Kindergarten topics such as emotions, fruits, and emergent reading in terms of phonics in sing-song rhyme, sequencing and repetitive text, but it does all this in a manner that is entertaining and enjoyable to read. – Educator

I can’t wait for Sweet Victory to come out. I want this for my home library and for my classroom library. – Educator

The illustrations capture the natural beauty of the Caribbean.- Artist
