Summary
Shrinking Violet: This story about self-confidence shows us what happens when the shyest girl in school gets the lead part in the play. Three cheers for Catherine the Great: This is the tale of Sara's feisty Russian grandmother and her birthday celebration with "no presents" from everyone. What will the no presents be? Giraffes can't dance: Gerald the Giraffe just wants to dance! Everyone else at the Jungle Dance seems to be a better dancer. Maybe with a little encouragement he'll be the best of all! Amazing Grace: Her classmates discourage Grace from trying out for the part of Peter Pan because she's black and a girl. She tries out anyway and wins the part!
