LitPick gives Margie Makes a Difference a 5-star Review!
“I found the second book in the Lady Tigers Series, Margie Makes a Difference by Dawn Brotherton, to be a quick read with a positive message. It stresses the importance of friendship, patience, caring about others, and working together. The way the team joins together to help one of their own overcome a hardship is a valuable lesson for kids.
Although the book has many of the same characters that were introduced in Trish’s Team, the first book in the series, this book could easily stand on its own. I would recommend this book for kids ages 7 to 11, and believe it would especially be enjoyed by girls who play softball.” – LitPick
“This plucky book affirms the value of hard work, team effort, and compassion. As Margie learns when she helps kids connect with their parents abroad, you can always use your own experiences to help other people—and volunteering gives you a great feeling, too.” – Foreward Reviews
“Very few books have ever done as good a job of showing the price we pay for our military people to serve their country. “Margie Makes a Difference” has a lot to say about many different topics and does it very well.” – Midwest Book Review
