Just Grace Gets Crafty by Charise Maricle Harper
I hadn't read any of this series before, and really liked it. Grace is a happy girl that thinks of others often. She is genuinely interested in other people (empathy is her secret superpower), and can often see how people are feeling by looking at them. Then she wants to help.
Here, she likes a new assignment the substitute teacher gives at school, and she wants to help the new crossing guard find a friend.
The crafty part is helping for a fundraiser for her best friend's brother's preschool. But she is also wiley at figuring out how to help the people she is interested in helping.
This series is aimed at kids from 6-9, and has good boy characters as well as girls.
