"The production on this book project is clean and well done. The timing of the theme is absolutely perfect too, as our children are experiencing increased episodes of anxiety and anxiousness due to the global pandemic and drastic change in their schedules (no school and activities). I read this book with my daughter who is now 10 and she found it not only entertaining but impactful because the characters looked like her. We need more positive imagery and real life situations that our children can relate to. My daughter Nijayah immediately recognized the breathing technique you highlighted in this book and she said "Daddy that's what you do with me!"
