I Will Never Get a Star on Mrs. Benson's Blackboard

By Jennifer K. Mann
Illustrated by Jennifer K. Mann

Rose’s teacher gives stars for spelling and neatness and giving the right answer, but Rose can’t manage to do any of those things right. Will she ever get a star from Mrs. Benson?

Rose is a distracted and creative soul. She does her best at school, but sometimes her mind wanders, and she answers the wrong question. Her reading voice is quiet, not strong and loud. And her desk—well, keeping her desk neat is a challenge. When it’s time to make thank-you cards for a class visitor, Rose’s art supplies turn her workspace—and her—into a colorful mess. But her artistic skills shine through in the gorgeous oversize card she creates. Could she possibly get a star after all? A cheerful and empowering picture book for the child whose talents lie in unconventional areas, and those still searching for their strengths.

  • New picture book from rising talent Jennifer K. Mann.
  • An encouraging story for children that struggle with schoolwork.
  • Perfect for artistic or creative children (who might not always have the cleanest desks!)
