wonderful life lessons just like the game of golf itself.

This is a fun children’s book that teaches great life values
portrayed through golf. I am very excited to share this
with my kids.

Mary has written a wonderful book for young golfers that reminds all of us who love the game to keep it simple and have fun! In addition to being an excellent golf instructor, it should be noted that Mary Jacobs is also an incredible semi-professional salsa dancer.

Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You
What a wonderful inspiring story to share with any age really. Kids will relate to Polly Pivot as she evolves into a unique, aspiring golfer, her mantra being... One, two, follow through....
Polly Pivot models for kids that growing and learning along life's journey is not only fun but profitable if you hang in and follow your way through. The author shares this wonderful life lesson through her love of the game of golf. Her goal is to encourage kids to not get discouraged and quit but follow through in their daily lives in order to become the very best they can be.
I love the diverse characters, the theme of perseverance and the celebration of who you are created to be. The illustrations are full of emotion, activity, humour and extremely kid-friendly. I love them. The message is positive and uplifting and Polly Pivot is an excellent example for both young and old to emulate. I highly recommend this book.
