Ella McKeen, Kickball Queen
Coming September 3rd from Carolrhoda Books
Ella McKeen, Kickball Queen offers a pitch-perfect look at recess, friendship, and being a good sport. First grader Ella McKeen is the undisputed kickball queen until a new girl named Riya shows up―and shows her up at recess. How does Ella handle losing? By throwing herself on the grass and screaming while the rest of the class watches her fall apart. Yikes!
From the Kirkus review: “Readers will close this emotionally intelligent book with strong feelings—and will likely ask to hear it again and again.”
