Product description


Focuses on the socio-emotional health of children . . . providing a window for discussions about fear and anxiety. - Booklist, on RUBY FINDS A WORRY

"A priceless lesson for any child-or adult-conveyed in a beautifully child-friendly manner . . . A valuable asset to the library of a child who experiences anxiety and a great book to get children talking about their feelings." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Percival treats worry like a natural part of life, including the idea that sharing worries with others is a good way to ensure "they never hung around for long." --Publishers Weekly

"A captivating tale about happiness, being yourself, and the magic of learning to spread your wings and fly." --Foreword Reviews, starred review, on PERFECTLY NORMAN

"The message of acceptance . . . is presented in a child-appropriate and thoughtful manner." --Booklist on PERFECTLY NORMAN

"An ideal selection for storytimes." --School Library Journal on PERFECTLY NORMAN

"Percival's message is emphasized through the canny use of color as a storytelling mechanism: Norman's world is in greyscale . . . As the wings come out, Norman and everything he's near turns technicolor." --Publishers Weekly on PERFECTLY NORMAN

"The contrast of black-and-white illustrations with splashes of bright color complements the story's theme. . . . A heartwarming story about facing fears and acceptance." --Kirkus Reviews on PERFECTLY NORMAN
