Belle Teal by Ann M. Martin
Belle Teal Harper is going into 5th grade, and she is very excited for this school year. There are two new kids in her class, and she becomes great friends with one of them, Darryl. The book deals with many difficult aspects of growing up; Belle Teal encounters racism, death, abuse, bullying, and other harsh realities of adulthood, forcing her and other characters to learn acceptance.

What does #LiveInsideOut mean?
We focus on helping kids develop the character skills (i.e. social and emotional skills) necessary to thrive in their lives, schools, and later in jobs and community, which is the “inside piece”. The “outside” part is being connected to the community through volunteerism. All of our programs combine these two elements!
Thank you to our Annual Presenting Partners!
The Inside Out Club is positively impacting more than 3,000 children and their families each year.
