About the Book

A group of thirty-one students at St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Rockville, Connecticut are determined to prevent their school from shutting down due to a lack of funds.  After a third-grade boy comes up with the idea of having a children’s circus, this fun-loving bunch of kids work together to put on a grand performance.  While dazzling the crowd with various acts such as alligator wrestling, high-wire walkers, trapeze performers, stunt riders, and fire eaters among others, each and every student showcased in The Circus Kids proves that they can do anything they set their minds to.  This heartwarming yet comical children’s novel easily rekindles the spirit that the youth of America will truly shape the future of our wonderful country.
