Just Don’t Give Up – Detailed Book Review

Just Don’t Give Up! is an entertaining read, written to inspire children to play golf and never give up. Delightfully illustrated by Alexandra Columbo, the colourful story follows the two main characters, Lola and Eddie, as they, with help from Lola’s Mum, chip balls into a bucket in the garden and learn to use a sand wedge.

While Just Don’t Give Up! is about Lola and Eddie’s golfing journey, the concept for the story clearly came from the author’s experiences. Mia has never given up when faced with challenges on her golf journey, which is how she has managed to see such an explosive growth within a particularly challenging niche.

I bought a copy of Just Don’t Give Up! recently for my 4 month-old Grandson. Yes, I know, he is far too young for this book at the moment, but there’s a distinct lack of children’s golf books. Look how happy he was to receive it!

I’ll be reading Just Don’t Give Up! to my Grandson regularly for the next couple of years until he’s old enough to start his own journey with real clubs. What age is it acceptable to start training the next Tiger Woods?
