A great book demonstrating how to vocalize your feelings. Le Henand displays an open dialogue between little ones who are either cranky, afraid, or angry and their accompanying parents. This encourages responding to feelings with open communication rather than reacting, and has fun tabs to pull too! ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost

Published: Flying Eye Books - September 11th, 2018

This thoughtful book speaks perfectly to children dealing with anxious and fearful thoughts. The personification of fear works flawlessly here, and the message that fear is not something to be eliminated, but rather that it's important only not to let it grow too big is what makes this title a real winner. All at once demystifying fear and nudging us toward compassion, Sanna gets all the stars from me. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost

Published: Phaidon Press - May 8th, 2019

A colorful, silly book that will entertain grown-ups too! A good board book for little ones who aren't ready for a whole lot of words just yet, while the words that are here are presented in various rhymes meant to trip up the reader and make parents laugh. Did that page say elephants or underpants? Are either of those edible? ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost

Published: Clarion Books - March 26th, 2019

An unapologetically bold and modern retelling. Elliott effortlessly works verse, rhyme and comedy into a tragic tale, all while maintaining the individuality of characters' voices and the integrity of the myth. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
