To learn the basics of ice skating, pick up a copy of It’s Okay to Fall. This uplifting story follows the first lesson of a young girl with her coach. After Kayla’s first timid steps onto the ice, not only does she get to howl like a wolf and stomp on the ice but she learns that falling is the most important lesson of learning to skate. Written by a former competitive figure skater and coach, the technical aspects of the book give the story a duality -- that of a "how to" piece as well as a beautiful picture book inspiring some important lessons about life. The reading level is intended for ages 3-6 but appeals to determined skaters of all ages.
