Heidi is a stick insect, tall and long like the twig of a tree. It's her first day at a busy bug school, where she hopes to learn and make new friends. But starting from her very first step, the other school critters mistake her for a broom, trees, and even a coat rack! How will she make friends when she can't even be seen?
For kids who are nervous about starting school, or scared they won't be able to make friends, Heidi will serve as a welcoming and inspiring character to help them take those first steps towards standing out in the crowd. And for those bug-lovers, there are plenty of bugs to find, a la the "Where's Waldo" series!
Praise for Twig:
"Her illustrations are whimsical and warm and her writing is rhythmic and poignant, the perfect read aloud!" -Children's Books Daily (1/9/2018)
