Format: Paperback
Natalie is a five year old who wants to do something fabulous that no one else has ever done. Yet every time she tries, things go terribly wrong. First, she tries to make purple omelets...but instead, she makes the kitchen so filthy, it takes her mother most of the morning to clean up the mess. She tries to beautify the bathroom...but only ends up making a scribbly crayon mess on the wallpaper. She tries to make her daddy some one-of-a-kind shoes...but only succeeds in ruining his church shoes. She tries to save some ants...and ends up infesting her house with them.

"Only Natalie!" her mother says over and over again, exasperated. Instead of doing something wonderful and feeling wonderful, too, Natalie feels horrible. At the end of the day, after Natalie's been sent to bed, she prays: "'I'm sorry...I don't like being Only Natalie.' I tell God under the covers. I can feel God trying to take some of that sad out of my heart. And that works a little. But there is a whole lot of sad in there..." Then Natalie's parents walk in, so Nat pretends to be sleeping. Even so, her parents say bedtime prayers without her. Her father says: "Dear God...thank you for this wonderful day you've given us. And most of all, thank you for giving us our wonderful daughter, Natalie..." Her mother agrees: "Our Nat is one of a kind, heavenly Father. Who else could make our lives so full and wonderful...Only Natalie."

"And as I float into that sleepiness, my mind whispers thanks to God for making me, Natalie...the one-of-a-kind wonderful thing. Because it turns out I really do like being...Only Natalie."

What I Like: Every preschooler can relate to Natalie and all the trouble she gets into - with the best of intentions. Mackall does an excellent job getting into the head of a five year old.

Bought this for my daughter as a stocking stuffer at Christmas. She loves it and is now asking for the rest of the series.

This is our first Natalie book and my girls (I have three under age 9) were engrossed in the story as I read (yes, even the 9-year-old but she's a bookworm and reads anything). The only issue I had was that I was tripping over the words as I read because of some poorly constructed phrases. It's not extreme, just a little annoying. Some may like it as they feel like they are in Natalie's mind the entire story but I found I did not like that particular style. Other than that the book truly is great. If you can see an example inside the book then you may see what I mean.

The stories are relatable and we laughed at the antics and silliness. We also had great discussions during the serious parts. The end made me tear up. I love that this book has a Christian worldview (though it is not heavily spiritual). We will definitely be buying more of this series! They're already begging for the next one.
