Pick of the Week: Back to Front and Upside Down!

Back to Front and Upside Down! by Claire Alexander (Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, 2012)
It's the principal's birthday and the whole class is invited to his party! But, first, they must all make birthday cards for Principal Slippers. Oh, no! This causes Stan a lot of anxiety because like many children learning to write, his letters come out all wrong - backwards...upside down.... What is Stan going to do? With a little encouragement from a friend, the assistance of his kind teacher, and some practice, Stan's letters improve! This is an encouraging, sympathetic book that is sure to hit the right note with children at this stage.
