Cora June is B-O-S-S-Y!

She points out her teacher’s boring assignments. She dictates the games people play at recess. She even objects to family dinners. If Cora June doesn’t get her way in the classroom, on the playground, or at home, she can make life miserable for those around her. Will anyone put the brakes on her outlandish demands? And will Cora June ever realize that she can be a leader, but still be flexible? Or that there’s a difference between being assertive and being bossy?

Follow along with the lesson of teaching young people in grades K through 5 to become more aware of how their actions are perceived by others in this eye-opening tale about the benefits of not always getting your way. It’s My Way or the Highway! is the first title in an exciting new storybook series, The Leader I’ll Be!, by award-winning author Julia Cook.
