Amazing Annabelle and the Fall Festival

Amazing Annabelle and the Fall Festival


Annabelle Copeland welcomes being a Youth Committee member for the Fall Festival at Melville School, where she attends the third grade. As she works on her contribution for the arts and crafts booth, she recruits a few friends to assist her.

One of Annabelle’s friends is Lila, who turns out to be a very reliable source of support after Annabelle injures her ankle in P.E. class. Annabelle, who has never missed a day of school in her life, reluctantly hands over the reins of control to Lila. Annabelle has to trust Lila to do an amazing job, just as she would have done herself.

Amazing Annabelle and the Fall Festival teaches kids that even though unexpected injuries or setbacks may cause you to sit out of the game for awhile, the show must go on. It’s an important lesson in letting go of control and trusting others to take the lead.

“Amazing Annabelle is truly an amazing character! She possesses personality traits that we can all strive for: self-confidence, perseverance, compassion, endurance and problem solving. She has such a wonderful outlook on life and finds the positive in any situation. What a great role model! This is a great character education story that can be read across the elementary grade levels. While reading the story, I was able to bring Annabelle to life in my mind. The illustrations are fabulous! I look forward to reading all of her adventures. Such a wonderful gift of storytelling. Well done!”
