How to Do a Back-Spin: Discussion Guide

  • The How to Do a Back-Spin story has valuable lessons about friendship and grit for you and your children to share and discuss. No matter who does the reading (child, parent, or educator), the supporting Convo-Questions generate inspiring and insightful discussions.
