A great book for introducing group projects or group work in an elementary classroom! This book deals with many of the issues that come up in school group projects, such as someone doing all of the work and arguing over which way to do an assignment. It provides practical tips to solve these problems and how each group member can adjust their own behavior so that everyone is able to contribute to the group.

I found this to be an excellent read. I really enjoyed the presentation finding it to be very well done. But it was the values and skill set the children are being taught which truly contributed to the worth of this book. The younger children can start being introduced to these types of ideas the better and stronger their priorities will be. This is definitely the kind of material I would want provided and used as an educational tool in my child's classroom.

Okay, there are a few people at work that need this book.  I actually liked this one.  It’s about learning to work together and value the input and contributions of all team members.  I’m still not a big fan of the art work but it fits well with the lesson and story of the book.

Amelia is a smart, clever, independent thinker and very capable of solving problems.  She loves to get things done efficiently and on her own.  She is about to learn a very valuable life lesson.  Flyng solo can limit your own capabilities.  

Through different scenarios portrayed in the book Amelia learns to become a team player and to value and respect other people's thoughts, feelings and contributions.  Not only is it a necessary skill to have but it's also very enjoyable when you can work with others successfully and appreciate the skills and ideas that they have to offer.  

This is the latest book in the "Without Limits" book series.  This is book number 6.  The illustrations are wonderful and are full of emotion and activity.  The book has a great positive message that teaches kids at an early age to be accepting, inclusive and to be open to other people's points of view.  The title is spot on... "Everyone's Contribution Counts."  Sharing individual uniqueness is a truly wonderful thing.   It can result in lasting friendships and the realization that others have fresh and amazing things to offer to a conversation, a game or a project, just to name a few.  I love the whole vibe of the book and I highly recommend it.

I loved this book! The illustrations went great with the story. I love how he used multiple scenarios to show how to appreciate others. Even in personal life, and not school or sports. This will teach kids of all ages, and I think it can also help adults too!

An ARC of this book was sent to me to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers.

This is the 6th book in a series and although I haven't yet read the other books, I found this one to be really good. This book teaches children the value of working as a team and valuing and respecting other peoples thoughts, feelings and contributions. The book gives 3 steps for children to think of and remember to help them put this into practice which is repeated through the book. 
A lovely story with a great message within it for all children.
