The first book in the series: Can’t-Wait Willow!
Willow is so excited that the Over-the-Top Circus has finally come to town! The only problem is, that when left to her own devices, she can’t say “no” to some good things. On the way to the show, she is distracted by enticing treats and fun that she just can’t turn down. Willow arrives late and is sad to find that, not only has she has run out of time, but money, and she won’t be able to enjoy the pink cotton candy she’s been dreaming of. Willow is given valuable advice and a second chance and is ultimately taught the lesson that sometimes in life you have to say “no” to good things to end up with something great!
About the Illustrator: Thanks to her first grade teacher, who recognized her superior skills in drawing a robin, Luanne Marten has been drawing, painting and sketching ever since. She is a great experimenter and has a fresh, whimsical approach to bring her characters to life.
Website: The author’s website has great resources to support the book, including a printable poster with ‘Ways to Shine Bright,’ as well as reward chart you can use at home with your children.

Books… I read picture books to my students everyday. The last picture book I read to them was Clifford’s Mother’s Day. The students loved it and even asked why Clifford was so big at the end and his mom was so little. 🙂
The last book I read was, The Witness by Dee Henderson. =)
Hope you guys are doing well!
The kids haven’t been to the circus, but we love taking them to the zoo!
My kids haven’t been to the circus yet. Was thinking of bringing them this year.
