Thanks to NetGalley and Tanglewood for the opportunity to read and review Is a Worry Worrying you? by Ferida Wolff and Harriet May Savitz with illustrations by Marie LeTourneau! This book has simple but appropriate illustrations that convey the feeling of worrying while reminding us that it’s our choice whether we worry or not. There are many worries in life and this book gives ideas of how to get rid of worries in a fun, simple way. The worry is shown in each illustration. It’s drawn many different ways with its expression showing happiness to sadness, depending on whether the character on the page is letting the worry cause stress or making it leave. Very helpful to ease everyone’s worries, 5 stars!

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
Thanks to NetGalley and Tanglewood Publishing for the opportunity to read and review Argyle Fox by Marie Letourneau. The Argyle Fox picture book is a beautifully illustrated story of a wind ruining a young fox’s imaginative play. After the warnings from the friendly animals and the frustration of his play being ruined, clever Argyle comes up with something wonderful that he can play with in the wind. I like the details in the artwork showing Argyle’s creativity and his comfortable home. 4 stars for a story that shows how well improvisation works!

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
Thanks to NetGalley and Tanglewood Press for the opportunity to read and review A Kissing Hand for Chester Raccoon by Audrey Penn! This classic children’s book has been transformed into a board book edition, with the same message as The Kissing Hand. Simple and beautiful illustrations, sketched and and brought to life with watercolor, represent the loving relationship between a mother and her son. She’s trying to build his security and self confidence by giving him her gift of a kissing hand. I remember reading this book to my own children years ago and the comfort that it gave them and me is still memorable. 5 stars!
