When it comes to knowing what she wants, Cora June is on top of it! Cora June knows.

She and her classmate, Wilson, are locked in a battle of wills. Each one desperately wants to be the ultimate decider. They scream at each other about whether to play dodge-ball or soccer at recess. They get into a tug of war over a popsicle. Each wants to dictate where to go on the next class trip! Can these two opinionated, wanna-be leaders compromise or agree to anything?

Using rhymes and easy to relate to situations, this story offers valuable lessons about the power of compromise and why the best leaders are never afraid to negotiate. The Great Compromise is the second title in The Leader I’ll Be! series by award-winning author and education expert Julia Cook.

The ability to compromise is one of the most powerful skills we can teach our children and learning the skill requires a lot of patience.

Tips for parents and educators are included at the end of the storybook to help children in grades K through 5 become more self-aware.
