From the Series Georgie Dupree
A is for Affirmation!
Georgie Dupree loves learning, but on her first day at her new school, she has worrisome thoughts about the school year: “What if I get lost? What if I don’t make any friends? What if everyone is smarter than me?”
Inspired by her teacher’s daily classroom affirmation, Georgie Dupree uses positive thinking to see, believe, and embrace her school year goals. This is the second book in the Georgie Dupree series that helps children and teachers start the school year on a strong note.
