Billy Saves the Day – Book 6 from the Billy Growing Up series

Billy Saves the Day is Book 6 in The Billy Growing Up Series.

A lack of self-belief inhibits a child reaching their full potential. Help your child work towards becoming the best they can be.

Billy Field is given an opportunity to act in the school play, but he tells himself he can’t do it. He convinces himself that he’ll never learn all the lines. Feeling unsure and vulnerable, he thinks of all the ways he can get out of playing a part. Instead he becomes a member of the stage crew, and without even realising it, he learns the lines, not only for the main part but all the other parts too. Following an accident befalling Ant Turner who is playing the lead role, the play might have to be cancelled.
Is Billy able to play the main part? Will Ant be well enough to save the day? Does Billy overcome his lack of self-belief?

Billy Saves The Day is the sixth title in the Billy Books series. Each book addresses a unique topic—bullying, arrogant pride, jealousy, lying, stealing, lack of self-belief, understanding money, and secrets. Written to help parents, guardians and teachers deal with the issues that challenge pre-teen children; each topic is presented in a gentle way through storytelling. Setting the issues in a meaningful context helps children to understand the challenges, and to see things from a different perspective. The books act as icebreakers allowing for discussions of difficult subjects. Additionally, each title is supported by a free activity book to reinforce the learning, while having fun.

Reviews of Billy Saves the Day

“Minter admirably addresses the fears and stage jitters any actor … feels when they’re preparing to perform. The reader just can’t help but get involved in Billy’s dilemma and caught up in the excitement of putting on a play. Can Billy be a superhero and save the performance that so many worked so hard to put on? Billy Saves The Day is a marvellous story that shows kids how great things can happen if you believe in yourself and are willing to put in the necessary effort. It’s most highly recommended.” Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite.

The book comes with a free activity book for extra fun available at the author’s website: https://www.billygrowingup.com/activity-book/4592245317
