Synopsis

Emily Pearl already knows a lot. She can count to fourteen. She can write her own name. She can tell what is different and what is the same. And she's still quite sure she can do things herself. Not only that, she wants to be the perfect helper for her new teacher, Ms. Glenn.

But while Emily is mastering all sorts of skills, she does need a little help herself every now and then - especially at the end of the day, when she's waiting to get picked up and is just a little bit scared.
