I am looking for books for my almost 6-year-old. She has started a new dance class and is feeling a little inadequate. I'd like to find some books that help her deal with feeling like "less than the best" in her class. I was thinking of something like The Little Engine That Could but with real people instead of trains! Any suggestions?

<i>JoJo's Flying Sidekick</i> is a good one. Lessee, <i>The Carrot Seed</i>, <i>The Dot</i> and <i>Ish</i> by Reynolds, and <i>Titch</i> by Pat Hutchins (about feeling small and insignificant). I might have a list somewhere... I'll check.

A couple more:<br><br><i>Daniel's Duck</i> by Clyde Robert Bulla<br><i>Don't Feed the Monster on Tuesdays</i> by Adolph Moser (non-fiction; to be shared between parents and children) -- This is meant for a somewhat older child so you might wish to preread to judge its suitability. It could be adapted for a younger child.

The original "Little Engine that Could" is such a drag to read. I keep meaning to hide it from my children, because it makes me want to pull my hair out! I'm glad to find other options!<br><br>
Try "The OK Book" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld. There's another book with a similar title by Todd Parr--that might be good too.
