The students at Chicorée Elementary are back and this time Emelia is feeling stressed. She has some big tests and is nervous about having time to finish. So imagine her reaction when Sammy gets an extra few minutes to finish his test, and Cecelia gets to use a calculator for hers!

When her big belly breaths aren’t helping her calm down, Emelia goes to visit the school counselor, Mr. Collins. Mr. Collins uses keen listening, positive relationships, and wonderful illustrative examples to help Emelia see that fair does not always mean equal.
