Becca is a feisty child with a flair for poetry and fantastical style! She fearlessly speaks her mind and acts on her feelings, but sometimes she could use a little direction. With untamed emotions wilder than her unruly hair, Becca gets carried away and crosses boundaries before she can rein in her feelings. When unruly behavior puts her in the spotlight at school, Becca learns to shine like a true star, rising to the challenge of building character and self-control--with a little help from friends and family!
Lesson plan and other resources suitable for parents, caregivers, and teachers are included.
