Nona was excited!
She'd been practicing, you know.
Tomorrow was the annual
Littlewood Talent Show!
But when Nona's turn came…
Just before she went to sing…
Something stopped her in her tracks…
Her chest began to sting!
Nona had been feeling super-duper great about her singing all week.
But then she saw all the amazing things the rest of the Hip Hop Littles were doing...
She watched Wan share incredible photos…
She watched Zoey model fantastic outfits.
She watched Rain DJ, Alison dance, and Jordan Graffiti.
They were all so wonderful that she suddenly felt very anxious.
She didn't want to sing anymore.
What on Earth was she going to do?
This is a story about two things all humans feel from time to time… feeling intimidated and feeling anxious. These emotions can be very scary when children feel them for the first time, which can also leave them feeling lonely as a result. This book looks to reassure young readers that it is normal and OK to have these emotions, and that whatever they have to offer is just as important as what other people bring to the world.
