What Readers Are Saying...

"This story reminded me of when I was a child watching Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. In a light, lively manner, the author dives into the subjects of change and fear. Two common things most children experience the most of in varying degrees. "

Amazon Reviewer

"Young listeners can be prompted to answer or think about the questions posed throughout the book. This book is written at a level that makes it suitable for young readers to try on their own. Most highly recommended."
