The Power of Yet is based on the growth mindset of the same name which is widely used in many schools. It encourages children to realize that with patience, time, practice and grit, anything is possible.
This book also ties into the unusual times we are in, when many things are not possible YET and everyone needs patience and courage. Join Maryann as we encourages and inspires children to find their POWER of Yet.
Maryann will read the book, and talk briefly about her idea and do a quick sketch of the adorable piglet character she created.

from Publisher's Weekly (Jan. 2021):
Spare, gently rhyming text shows Cocca-Leffler’s proficiency in the area of uplifting children, while heartwarming pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations empathically show the piglet’s struggles, likely to the amusement of young readers.

Ages preschool - grade 2.
Great for individuals, homeschool groups and small classrooms
Max 10 children
30 mins
Maryann will send a PDF activity sheet.
