This story is about a young girl who seems to not have the confidence she needs. She is not excellent at reading and she gets nervous when reading aloud to her peers. She worked and practiced at night. She would practice by reading to her dog at home. Finally the day came for her to read in front of her classmates. She did great! This book will show the students what constant practice will do for one's reading capabilities. This book could also be used to build students knowledge of an encouraging environment. Students could learn knew ways to support and encourage one another. They could learn knew ways to build people up rather than breaking them down. I would say this book will work great for 2nd to 6th grade. The older grades would might need to focus more on the confidence building rather than the text itself. The text could act as a guide.
