6. BILLY SAVES THE DAY
|BY JAMES MINTER|
|ABOUT THE BOOK|
"Billy Saves the Day" looks at the issue of self-confidence.
Children need belief in themselves and their abilities, but having an inflated ego can also be detrimental. Lack of self-belief holds them back but over-praising leads to unrealistic expectations.
Billy is picked for the lead role in the school play but he is convinced that he is not good enough. Will he be able to find his confidence in time?
