Carolyn loves second grade...until her difficulty with cursive handwriting shakes her confidence! If your child is struggling with fancy handwriting books or school assignments then this sweet picture book is for you. Perfect for teachers searching for genius and anxiety resources for their classrooms!
Stacey Coolidge is the best at handwriting. She hardly ever uses her eraser. But Carolyn isn't doing as well. Carolyn has been practicing cursive handwriting every day for weeks, and not only is she not going to get to play with Frederick, the class guinea pig, but her handwriting is also not much better than a guinea pig's. It's a good thing that her teacher, Mrs. Thompson, is able to turn her frustration into confidence!
This simple and humorous story reinforces the idea that practice always helps but that the end goal is not always perfection!
