Children's Corner: Back to Front and Upside Down!

 I asked Kidlet to pick her favorite book from her library books this month and she chose Claire Alexander's Back to Front and Upside Down!

Stan's having trouble writing his letters and is afraid to ask for help.  It's really upsetting to him and it affects his whole day.  Stan finally admits it to his friend, Jack who encourages Stan to ask the teacher for help.  When Stan plucks up the courage to ask for help, he finds he was not the only one having trouble.  Though it takes hard work to correct the situation, Stan is the proudest of all when he is finished.

I was pleasantly surprised that my daughter chose this book.  It's one of those books parent's like for the content, but I'm always unsure how children feel them.  It's a good reminder that no matter what our age, sometimes we need to ask for help.
