Ellie Bean

The Drama Queen

Such an amazing book. We have shared it with my child's teacher who has read it to the classroom. It is written on level that even smaller kiddos can understnd yet would also be very appropriate for older elementary kiddos. This was an easy way to start a conversation in the classroom about why my child behaves the way he does. Thanks to the author for kick starting what could be a difficult topic.
