The third Monday in January is apparently the saddest day of the year. Are you blue? I know just the book to cheer you up:
In the first of this graphic early reader series, we meet Bella and her family. Bella sometimes struggles with anxiety. Her dad and grandmother help with her everyday worrie, but when Bella meets a therapy dog she names Blue, they all quickly discover that the two are a perfect match. When Bella gets the blues, Blue chases them all away! This book is perfect for emergent readers who love the graphic-novel format, kids who are worriers (or know people who are), and dog lovers. I love the charming illustrations in mostly black, white, and shades of gray, but with the signature color of blue featured throughout. The characters and storylines are relatable and fun. As a dog owner, a mom of a worrier, and daughter of someone who loves to shop, I can relate to Bella’s family, and I’m sure many other readers will too. Brava to debut author-illustrator, Berrie Torgan-Randall for this adorable book. I can’t wait to read more!
