Milton Public Library

Not yet, the story of an unstoppable skater, written by Zahra Lari and Hadley Davis ; illustrated by Sara Alfageeh - hardcover

"After watching an ice-skating movie, young Zahra sets her mind to learn how to ice skate even though her family and friends doubt her abilities. After all, she's too old to learn, the rink is too cold, and figure skaters don't look like her ... not yet at least! Illustrated with Sara Alfageeh's energetic lines and colors that pop right off the page, we follow Zahra's story as she glides across the floors of her house in her socks all the way to the ice rink ... and as she repeatedly says ''not yet'' to naysayers-including herself-who try to convince her to stop pursuing her dream. An inspiring tale of self-empowerment and perseverance as we see the refrain-not yet-grow from a low, meek mumble to a mantra and promise filled with determination"--, Provided by publisher
