Growing up,she says, all kinds of stories were used, to quiet, to entertain, and to teach life lessons, but all stories worked to instill a love of the story – any story.

Lula Bell on Geekdom, Freakdom & the Challenges of Bad Hair by C.C. Payne
"This was a great little book. Easy to read for an adult, and quite relatable for those in the target age range. I would guess that it would be for 4-6 grade based on the age of Lula Bell, as well as the overall message behind the book. "

“You know, Lula Bell, being brave doesn’t mean not being afraid,” Daddy said. “Being brave and having courage mean going ahead even though you are afraid.”
