I Will Try

by Marilyn Janovitz (2012, Holiday House, 14.95/hardback)
         [Amazon prices often change...your invoice will reflect the most recent.]

Ella is in awe of Jan, the star of her gymnastics class. Jan can spin and leap on the balance beam. Can Ella? Her first attempt is a failure, and Ella is ready to give up. But Jan is a star at friendship too; and with her encouragement, Ella tries again--and succeeds! The adorable, leotard-clad young gymnasts fill the pages with action; and the story offers valuable, age-appropriate lessons in kindness, sportmanship, and how important it is to try, try again. Color. Grades PreK-3. [8” x 10...32 pages]

This book introduces children to the benefits of trying something new and the basics of stick-to-it-iveness. Includes suggestions adults can use to reinforce the ideas and skills being taught. Color.
