BECOMING A LEADER

A herd of Spanish sheep is badly in need of guidance

Everyone has heard of Isabella, the Spanish queen who boldly sent Columbus on his voyages to the Americas. Our story is not about that Isabella.

No, our story is about another Isabella, who is not a queen nor a leader of any kind She is a sheep, and as everyone knows, sheep are followers. They are perfectly content to trail along behind whomever happens to be a few steps ahead.

One day Isabella begins to wonder if there isn't a better way. "Must we always be wandering about willy-nilly, nobody knowing where we are going?" But, as Isabella learns, recognizing the need for a leader and accepting the responsibility of being one are two different things.

The story of how Isabella is transformed from a follower into a leader takes place in the heart of Spain, on the dry, rugged grazing land below the old city of Segovia. There, in the shadow of the Alcazar, the castle where Queen Isabella was crowned, Isabella the sheep finally steps forward to guide her little flock.

FOLLOWING ISABELLA presents children with a different view of leadership-not as the wielding of power, but as a service performed for the benefit of others. It is a thought-provoking story for reluctant leaders young and old

Author Linda Talley's gifted writing makes the story set in faraway Spain come alive with classic characters facing the challenges of leadership and responsibility. Illustrator Andra Chase's luminous watercolors capture Isabella's adventure and the customs, people and traditions of Spain. The Flags of the Autonomous Regions of Spain are especially interesting and colorful.

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the "Enrichment Information" which includes lots of facts about The Kingdom of Spain, The Castles of Spain, The Churches of Spain, the Fiestas and The Song and Dance of Spain...and best of all, the Fiesta Brava - The Bullfight.

A second big plus is the "Letter to Parents and Educators" which includes many  relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with young readers about the message of the story...a new kind of leadership...for the good of others! So even though on the surface this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.
