This book is to teach kids about the importance of planning anything, especially a party.

The Creative School Class (Bk 3)

Creativity is one of the most important things in kids. We need creative thinking in our kids for them to learn how to problem solve.

She wants them to create something to solve a problem. Great book for teaching kids to use their creativity.

A wonderful story about valuing others and collaboration.
