Classroom Confidence: Georgie Dupree

We rated this book:


Georgie Dupree recently moved from Louisiana to Washington D.C; she was excited to start a new school but worried that the other kids wouldn’t accept her. Some of the students laughed at Georgie for dancing along to the teacher’s positive affirmation; she became so embarrassed and anxious that she felt sick to her stomach. Georgie tried her best to think positive thoughts, draw pictures of her goals, and be optimistic about each new day. With help from her teacher and friends, Georgie learns to embrace her unique personality and find confidence in a confusing time.

This book is perfect for any young child that is starting school or embarking on a new adventure. Author Ceece Kelley has created an inspirational story that will encourage children to face their fears, persevere in challenging times, and be true to themselves. My favorite aspect of this book is the positive affirmations present throughout the story; encouraging children to repeat these words can increase their self-esteem in times of uncertainty. “Georgie Dupree: Classroom Confidence” is full of diverse and inclusive illustrations that will make children feel seen and understood. I highly recommend this story to all children ages four to nine.
