Mrs. Joyce, the school counselor at Emerson Elementary, uses high-fives to connect with her students. When Raymond moves to town he's not sure what to think of Mrs. Joyce. He enters her office nervous and full of questions, but it doesn't take long for him to trust the caring counselor. By learning exactly what a school counselor does, Raymond finds he has nothing to fear and much to gain from friendly Mrs. Joyce.

Building relationships is one of the primary jobs of a school counselor. Whether it's giving a high-five, a thumbs-up, a fist bump, a handshake or a hug, finding a way to connect with students is vital. Mrs. Joyce Gives the Best High-Fives is a fun-loving story that explains the important role of the school counselor.

(If you'd like a softcover edition of this story for your class library, please shop Amazon $11.95.)
