The Old-Fashioned Way
Susan Conolly-Horne, author
Emma has a hard time waiting for anything and likes to get the job done. In this story, she is facing first grade in a new school with new teachers and friends. She suddenly realizes life can be scary sometimes, even for a first-grader. Emma soon learns, with the help of her trusted and wise friend, Mom (whom she calls Mia) that doing things differently is sometimes more satisfying, and a great way to invest in friendships. Have you ever acted before you thought or had a hard time waiting? If this has ever happened to you then maybe you can learn from Emma’s story.
