Babymouse #20: Babymouse Goes for the Gold by Jennifer L. HolmThis is a terrific addition to the Babymouse series as Babymouse dreams of Olympic glory and then settles for joining the school swim team. As is typical for her, Babymouse finds out that shes bitten off a little bit more than she can chew. After all, swimming is hard work, and her team, the Shrimps, faces some tough competition. But she also finds camaraderie among the other swim team members and has a chance to stretch herself in many ways. When she oversleeps, misses the bus for an important meet, and causes the team to forfeit its match, Babymouse feels terribly guilty. But the Shrimps are forgiving, and they take her back. There are many important life lessons embedded in this books pages, nestled among the humor. The book is worth its weight in gold medals. Truly, I love Babymouse because of her imperfections.
