Praise for A Vacation for Pooch

"This will be a usefully light-hearted way to approach separation anxiety of all kinds, and the book’s small size makes it perfect to tuck into a bag for reassuring worried young travelers who miss their own furry friends." -- BCCB

"Pitch-perfect, well-paced and with a conclusion that will leave children deeply satisfied, this is a book to be shared before any kind of separation and just for fun." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"...emotionally observant..."--Publishers Weekly

“The split-page format that appears on several of the spreads allows readers to see each character on vacation.” – School Library Journal

 
"A cleverly conceived, charming little story for kids with beloved pooches of their own." -- Booklist

Praise for Jack’s Talent:

 

“Warm illustrations of the enthusiastic students help make this a nice choice for those just starting school.” Kirkus Reviews

 

“Children will find piquant details in the pictures when they return to it later on their own.” —The Horn Book

 

Praise for Mr. Tanen’s Ties:

 

“An enjoyable read-aloud for classrooms and libraries.” —School Library Journal
