Stickley the frog has the gift of stick-to-it-ness, or perseverance: the ability to stick with tasks and see them through, no matter how frustrating or challenging they may be, even when good results are not guaranteed. Perseverance is an important skill to learn, because getting things done at home and at school helps children achieve goals and feel proud.

With humor and whimsical illustrations, Stickley Sticks to It shows kids how to persevere on challenging tasks with determination and confidence, just like Stickley. Read along with Stickley and see how he makes a plan, works hard, and gets things done

Includes a Note to Parents, Caregivers, and Professionals with more information about perseverance and strategies for nurturing stick-to-it-ness in kids.
