Praise For…


"Great illustration matched with fun rhyming text make for a solid tale of letting go and trying something new." -- School Library Journal"The jaunty rhyming text and brightly colored illustrations show an amusing ensemble of animals and help lighten the message, clearly stated at the end: 'Life can be great when you try something new!' They also cleverly strike a balance between portraying the basis for Kevin's fears and showing how little he needs to fear." -- Booklist
