Staff Reviews



I love this book. Growing up, countless adults told me to "stop worrying so much." I'm not sure they realized what an overactive imagination can conjure up in the face of the unknown. The mother in this book knows just what to say when her daughter asks if things will be ok—she uses her own imagination to turn each fear into a possibility, weaving stories of discovery and love. The ending is so reassuring, it made my heart swell. This is one to treasure. — From Emmy's Picks
