Natsumi! | Avery and Augustine

Natsumi is a little girl with a huge personality.  She does things with all the zeal, volume and might she can muster.  The grown-ups in her life always seem to want her to take her energy down a notch.  As she’s feeling discouraged and that she can’t do anything right, Grandfather imparts some timely advice.  Natsumi takes his words to heart and puts her energy into preparing an incredible surprise for her family at her village’s upcoming festival.  NATSUMI! is an exuberant and heartwarming tale that celebrates children’s uniqueness and strengths.

NATSUMI! was written by Susan Lendroth, illustrated by Priscilla Burris and published by G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers.
