A Lesson about Self-Confidence

When the Battle of the Bands is announced, many of Junior’s friends plan on competing. But not Junior! How can he play his tuba in front of everyone? He is not that good … or is he?

This is a Level One I Can Read! book, which means it’s perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences. It aligns with guided reading level J and will be of interest to children Pre-K to 3rd grade.

Chapter One

Junior's dad was reading the newspaper. "Junior," he said, "here's a story about the Bumblyburg Battle of the Bands!"

"You and your friends should enter," Dad said. "No, Dad," Junior said. "I don't want to play my tuba. Everyone will laugh at me."

Junior's mom convinced him to try. "You just have to practice," Mom said. "You'll see. A little hard work will pay off!"

Junior tried. But he got frustrated. "It's too hard," Junior said. "I'm not going to do it."
