'TRIPLE THREAT' - A CHILDREN'S BOOK BY CLAUDETTE MCGOWAN
Story time for the entire family!

Time to get into the holiday spirit - grab a hot chocolate, a plate of shortbread cookies, a fuzzy blanket and cozy up with your little ones for this special read about a little girl named Savannah. An accomplishment for most people is being really good at one thing. For Savannah McDougall, being able to master ONLY one thing... was a sign of failure. Savannah quickly learns that success doesn't come easy and takes a lot more than a dream to achieve her goals. Join Savannah on her journey as she discovers that amazing things can happen - even when life DOESN'T go your way. Triple Threat is one of multiple children's books written by author Claudette McGowan. Claudette is deeply committed to creating inclusive literature that encourages people of all ages to diversify their shelves and embrace stories that reflect all experiences.
