“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!”
