And Two Boys Booed

And Two Boys Booed
by Judith Viorst
illustrated by Sophie Blackall
Margaret Ferguson Books, 2014. Picture Book

A sweet and simple tale of a boy who gets up one day, excited to sing his song for his class talent show. But as the time for his performance draws closer--stage fright begins to set in. The colorful watercolor painting are full of fun things to look at, but it is the many fun flaps begging to be lifted that really makes this a great interactive story for young readers. Each flap advances the story, animating the main character along his journey toward finding his inner courage.
