It’s Molly’s turn for show-and-tell, and she is terrified of speaking in front of the class. In fact, she even makes up excuses as to why she can’t do so. However, as she goes about her days, she hears from others about things they can’t do, and she encourages them to try. Eventually she comes up with a great plan on how to help herself and everyone else.
Jack Canfield’s book, (Amazon affiliate link) I Can Believe in Myself, is a great picture book for children who may be afraid of trying and failing. It is simple and to the point with only being slightly preachy. Overall, it is a good book for encouragement and understanding that everyone has times when they feel like they can’t do something. Miriam Laundry’s illustrations are fantastic. The book is written in graphic novel format, and her full color illustrations make the book.
