"In fifteen compelling full-spread illustrations and with just 153 words, the author captures the three most likely areas of life pain for children with behavioral and emotional difficulties: being angry, being sad, and being "different." Her book reassures both the child and the parent and reminds us that the child's potentials can be realized and that life, though stressful for a special-needs child, can be beautiful."—John F. Taylor, Ph.D., author, The Survival Guide for Kids with ADD or ADHD
"Any parent with a child with learning differences can and will relate to this book. A perfect portrayal of both the sadness and joy a child with special needs brings to a family."—Susie Frank, Special Education teacher (ret.)
"An honest look at the range of emotions involved in raising a challenging child.... A very positive book for children and their parents."—Jamie Stack, Ed.S., School Psychologist
"A first choice to read to children when they're having a bad day. It's written and illustrated so sweetly and captures that tenderness at the center of our relationships with children. Great book!"—M. Mills, parent
