Find the Courage to Try Something New

When Maria's family moves to a new town, her parents sign her up for the summer soccer team to help her meet new friends. But Maria has never tried soccer before. She would rather be back on her old swim team. Maria is afraid she will be the worst player and no one will like her.

Coach Tony and Coach Lauren remind Maria everything is new at first. Maria will have to give soccer a try to see if she likes it. What have you wanted to try but were afraid to? Like Maria, you can have the courage to try something new, because who knows? That new thing you try might just become your next favorite thing!

Maria Finds Courage and Austin Plays Fair are two wonderful children’s books that embrace childhood struggles. They don’t have the typical happy ever after ending; they offer so much more.

Both books address the fears and struggles young children are confronted with and allow them to realize they are not alone.

I highly recommend that both of these books be offered to schools, child psychologists, and families. Children need to understand challenges they face and how to deal with them. Both of these books realistically address children’s issues and I hope they plans on a complete series of them.
