Super Lexi is a warmly funny chapter book about a determined but nerve-wracked second grader.
Lexi’s got phobias about lots of things. Yogurt. Songs that get stuck in her head. Cashiers who think they’re good with kids. Her biggest phobia on Planet Earth, though, is eyeballs staring at her. That’s how come it’s too bad she has a solo in the school Parents’ Day performance. Good thing she has a plan. If she tornado-twirls at blur speed, she can disappear onstage!
Not all kids enjoy holiday hoopla. For many, the holidays are a source of stress. These kids can be better off protected from things like holiday parties, school musical programs, trips to the mall, Christmas tree shopping, and lots of the decorating. Even too many crafts and cookie baking events can stress kids out. But that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the special season. There are lots of quiet moments that can be treasured during the season that are sure to recharge any introverted kid.
