What a find! This wonderful book explains in very plain terms what it is like to suffer a loss. Cleverly, this can mean death or separation. And it ends on the upswing of how we recover. Yay!

This book about cause and effect poses a curious question. If this set of things happened could that drive this other set of things? Your answer will be a resounding "YES"!

This is an older book but it is lovely and the message still rings true. The welcoming words of the book are from Fred Rogers. The book is about ways to act neighborly and how those actions transcend the places where we are to actually be global actions. People all over our planet assist their neighbors and celebrate with their neighbors. They educate their neighbors and work alongside their neighbors. All of humanity is building an existence and aspiring for a better life. This book is both humbling and uplifting!

Delightful! Kids will love this book where fathers are teaching their babies to say "dada" but the babies are speaking in their own animal languages.

Jimmy Fallon has been one celebrity who can conquer the picture book format. Enjoy!
