The idea comes down to the
fact that many students don't have
enough self-esteem and try to be
accepted for things other than being

The next adventure deals with
a sulky Eeyore fretting because no
one remembered or planned any

This demonstration was only

to make others around her happy,"
Richart said. And that's what roohs
