Unwrapping Some Illustrations 

for you


   The Book             

Sally Ann loves life and engages in it with her whole being.  She is always on the move and has a hard time composing herself and being still.  Unfortunately her uncontrolled fidgeting is disruptive to those around her and deemed as bad behaviour by most.  Her spontaneous  exuberance is sometimes inexcusable.  

Her teacher has had enough and sends Sally Ann off the principal's office for a time out... a break from her futile efforts to quiet the child and perhaps hope that Principal Gil can give Sally Ann some wise advice as to how to settle herself down.  Fortunately Principal Gil totally identifies with the distraught little girl because when he was younger he acted very much like her.  Because of the similarities he is able to give her some strategies to help her calm down those fidgets inside of her.  

Sally Ann truly wants to behave properly so she whole-heartedly adheres to his advice and it works!  Peace is attainable for this rambunctious, audacious little girl. 

This rhyming book has spectacular animated illustrations that enrich the message of the text.  They are full of emotion and oftentimes humour. The message is inspiring and encouraging to any parent, caregiver or educator who needs help to compose a fidgety child.  I highly recommend this book.
