About Extraordinary by Penny Harrison

extraordinary by penny harrison

Extraordinary is written by Penny Harrison and illustrated by Katie Wilson. It is described as “A gentle tale about reaching for the stars and being extraordinary . . . but remembering the ordinary too. Extraordinary celebrates the best moments in life: the ones we share with friends and family. They may be simple, they may be ordinary, but they are moments we will cherish forever.”

Opening the story, Witherspoon reads:

“Sometimes, when we’re busy, it can be hard to find time to notice the world around us. The things we see every day can seem a bit… ordinary. But if you stop, and look closer, you’ll see that our world is extraordinary!”

As bedtime nears, Reese encourages kids to look tomorrow at something that might at first glance appear ordinary as they might also discover something magical.
