All Day


In Deborah Marcero’s Out of a Jar, Llewellyn does not like to feel afraid. Or sad, angry, lonely, or embarrassed. So he comes up with a brilliant plan: he tucks each of his feelings into a jar and hides them away where they won’t bother him anymore. When he gets in trouble in class, Llewellyn finds he needs to put away excitement too. And when joy is quickly followed by disappointment, he decides to get rid of both of those as well. But what happens when his emotions refuse to stay bottled up any longer?
