The Apple Doesn’t Fall Very Far From the Tree
I’m a little clumsy, just like my Poppi!
About the Book
Gianni is playing in the park with his dog, Flea, when all of a sudden, he runs smack into a tree! He is so embarrassed, especially when everyone starts laughing, including Flea. As he runs home, he trips over the curb and falls again. Much to his dismay, everyone laughs again. Finally, after two more accidental falls, he arrives home and sees his grandfather, Poppi. When he picks him up to comfort him, a funny thing happens that makes Gianni realize that it’s okay to laugh at himself and his uniqueness. Sometimes relating to others, especially when it’s family, can help put things into perspective. In this delightful story, a little boy who has a gift for being clumsy discovers that being himself is the best way to be.
