Princess Posey and the New First Grader offers an insightful peek into a tender first grade girl’s social nuances. In it, Posey has a problem. There’s a newcomer in the first grade class, one who threatens Posey’s close friendships, causing her to question her sense of belonging. Grace, the new girl, is the personification of everything that Posey feels she can never be – pretty, charming, and very smart. As the story progresses, Posey discovers Grace’s secret weakness. When Posey slips on her pink tutu, she is empowered to respond to Grace’s special need in kindness, rather than in retribution.
