I Will Never Get a Star on Mrs. Benson's Blackboard
author/illustrator: Jennifer K. Mann
Rose is a distracted and creative soul. She does her best at school, but sometimes her mind wanders and she answers the wrong question. And keeping her desk neat is a challenge. When it’s time to make thank-you cards for a class visitor, Rose’s art supplies turn her workspace — and her — into a colorful mess. But her artistic skills shine through in the gorgeous oversize card she creates. Could she possibly get a star after all?
“This charming story is both affirmative and celebratory of the different skill sets children possess.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)
