28 Tips for a Fearless Grade 6 by Catherine Austen

Sweet, funny and totally age-appropriate.  I think the best readers for this book are grade 6 boys, and maybe even a few girls.   Trick #2:  “Girls like boys who like to dance,” leads 6th grader Dave to cure his friend of his fear of dancing.  This leads to other cures and more tips spanning the entire school year. Some favorites:
#9 – “If it’s exciting, it’s probably not allowed in school.”
#25 -“At any given moment around the world, something terrifying is happening.”
