When Lily was in kindergarten she enjoyed school, but now she’s in 2nd grade and doesn’t feel like she’s good at anything. The trouble is reading. Whenever she tries, the letters jump around and get all mixed up—and so does she. When Lily’s teacher announces that the children will read in front of their parents, Lily finally finds the courage to tell her mother about her problem. By working together, Lily’s mom, teacher and friend help Lily understand that she has many strengths. With hard work and new confidence, Lily surprises everyone—even herself—when the parents come to hear the kids read.
