Elementary School Kids
Do you ever feel too scared to speak up? Have you ever hesitated or held back, feeling unsure of yourself?
This inspiring story, based on eleven-year-old Alice Paul Tapper’s own experiences, shows how she took an idea and turned it into a national movement to give girls more confidence. After noticing that girls at school weren’t participating as much as boys, she put a plan into action and used her voice to encourage others to use theirs.
I don’t remember raising my hand much in school. Not because I didn’t know the answer. I didn’t, but that’s not my point. I was too busy concentrating on what the teacher was saying over my noisy classmates and keeping my anxiety from boiling over. But enough about me.
Anyway, this is a great book to show boys and girls that they don’t need to be afraid of speaking up. It’s not the end of the world if you give a wrong answer. Besides, then you can learn the correct answer.
