Willow is so excited, the circus has finally come to town!  She has been waiting so long, and the day has arrived.  There is so much that she has been looking forward to.

Unfortunately, Willow has a little bit of an impulse control problem. By the time she arrives at the Big Top the circus is almost over, and all of her money is gone.

Willow is a Shine Bright Kid.  The Shine Bright Kids share their stories to help children learn to make good choices.  Because she is a Shine Bright Kid, she has a little star that follows her.  When Willow is doing the right thing, the star looks happy.  When Willow is making a poor choice, the star sags and looks sad.

These cues help children to see the "choice points" in the story.  When you arrive at a choice point, discuss the decision and help your children see the difference between wise choices and poor choices.

The good news is that Willow gets some great advice and a second chance.  She learns from her mistakes.
Some times you've got to say 'no' to the good so that you can say 'yes' to the best. ~ Zig Ziglar
