Zach Hangs in There

by William Mulcahy, illustrated by Darren McKee

Zach has set a goal for himself—to get across the tricky trapeze rings on the playground. Every time he tries, he falls off before making it to the end. But with encouragement from his best friend Sonya and positive self-talk, Zach makes a plan to achieve his goal, adapts his plan along the way, and perseveres to the end. Zach feels so great about his success that he writes down the steps he used so he can repeat them next time he faces a tough challenge.
