Narrator Joshua David Scarlett's confident tones match the many ebullient turns of phrase that are used to present a self-assured boy who is certain that he is capable and loved. Scarlett makes the most of Barnes's story, which includes numerous iterations of a child recognizing that although he will fall, he will be "right back on his feet again." He later acknowledges that he is strong enough to offer comfort to himself. Scarlett takes advantage of passages with built-in emphasis, adding both levity and warmth. This celebratory title will bring a smile to listeners, leaving them waiting to share it and listen to it all over again. E.J.F.
