The bestselling creators of Llama Llama and Skippyjon Jones bring warmth and humor to a story with a comforting message we could all use when times are tough: everything will be OK.
Nothing is going right for little bunny today.
His sandwich has jelly instead of cheese.
He’s lost his kite.
Ow! And he’s stubbed his toe!
But while some days can feel more sad than happy, there’s always a bright spot on the horizon. Anna Dewdney and Judy Schachner perfectly blend rhyme, humor, and comfort to show readers the way out of a tough spot—no matter if it’s big or small.
“Fans of the Llama, Llama series will find the late Dewdney’s characteristic rhymes on display in this book about keeping perspective on life’s challenges. Whether it’s a stubbed toe, a lost kite, or a bad dream, reiterative, gently upbeat prose reassures readers that “everything will be OK” and prompts them to take comfort in family and friends. “Days are happy./ Days are sad.// Hold your mommy./ Hold your dad.// Whatever happens,/ love will stay.// Hold the ones you love today./ Everything will be OK.” Skippyjon Jones series creator Schachner employs a quilt-like range of colors and techniques—watercolor, acrylic, gouache, collage—in homey illustrations that conceptualize the story of a fluffy brown bunny navigating daily ups and downs with a small blue feline, making for a sympathetic water-under-the-bridge tale. Ages 2–5. (Feb.)”—Publishers Weekly
