About This Book
Charlie is a shy kid who hides behind the cleanup sink at school. However, after his teacher asks him to be her helper, he springs into action when the fire coral stings his friend Bernie. Charlie goes to bed a little bit early because he wants to make sure he gets a goodnight’s sleep. He wants to be a good helper for Miss Stella.
He had decided that it was way more fun to be a helper than to hide behind a sink! Before he falls asleep, Charlie prays, “Dear Jesus, thank you for my great first day of school, and thank you for my mommy and daddy, all my new friends and for Miss Stella. Help me to always help others. Amen.” Charlie learns he can overcome his shyness and be a servant like Jesus.
