I Don’t Want to Go by Addie Meyer Sanders will nudge hesitant little people to try new things. Joey is a shy boy when it comes to going off to his grandparents’ home for a visit. At every step of the journey and the visit, a new experience calls upon his bravery. He rides a train, tries fishing, and cooks up a monster batch of super-duper secret spaghetti sauce. Whenever his grandparents suggest a new activity, he imagines the worst, and then declares, “I don’t want to go.” But it always works out in the end. mRb
