Twig learns that failing doesn't make you a failure—it just opens up possibilities in the sixth book in the beloved Twig and Turtle chapter book series, perfect for fans of Ivy and Bean and Judy Moody.
Twig is having a tough time: Cara teaches Twig and Turtle how to call chickadees, only they love Turtle and won’t come to Twig’s hand. And at school, Twig isn’t chosen for a committee she was really excited about. It’s all so unfair!
When Dad realizes Twig needs a boost, he tells her about an experiment where, instead of letting rejection get you down, you go look for it and face it head-on.
So Twig decides to give it a shot, going to school and around town looking to be turned down and fail. And what she learns from the experiment—and about herself—is surprising and bright and full of possibility.
With a focus on perseverance, community, self-discovery, and a little environmental stewardship, this chrarming story accompanied by warm and inviting black-and-white illustrations throughout, is perfect for developing young readers.
