This is a really beautifully illustrated counting book, and interestingly not all the counting is in numerical order, which is good for growing brains! It's also a lovely ode to the art of noticing, and really captures the feeling of being shipped to school from the sticks early every morning.

Each story is self-contained, so you really could spend several, separate nights snuggling under the covers and reading to the tune of rain and thunder outside your window without the stress and worry of finishing a massive, nightmare-inducing volume prior to bed. (Also, Chloe Gong is in it!)

Published: Balzer + Bray - May 17th, 2022

This is a book that balances perfectly on the precipice between joy and heartache. It's a story about two siblings transferring to a new school, but it is also so much more than that. You will find discussion of depression/suicidality, sexuality, racism, transracial adoption, and religion all handled with sensitivity and care. But honestly, the sibling dynamics in this book are everything. Read it, then call your siblings.

After reading this book, I walked around the store holding it to my chest for a good 20 minutes. These little creatures highlight the complexity of human emotions in such an original and personal way, making you feel valid in every little feeling you experience. Bonus - if you were also personally affected by Disney's Inside Out in a way that you didn't expect... this is the perfect book for you.
