Lala Feels Blah-La
Written by Tela Kane
Illustrated by Goran Vitanovic
Lala wakes up in a bad mood and isn’t sure why. Her mom convinces her to try a happy thought to chase away the blahs. Brightly colored child-friendly art will keep little ones engaged and help drive home the message that sometimes bad moods happen and kids can exert control over their world by making a choice that a bad mood doesn’t have to mean a bad day. This was a great story, but there were some serious formatting issues with my kindle copy.

A Day at Salamander Park
Written by Reniya Brown-Shareef
There is a carnival at Salamander Park and Henry, his sister Carrie, and their friends are having a great time until Ralph the neighborhood bully starts giving them a hard time.
Written by a speech language pathologist, the book has a feel of social stories. It provides a teachable moment that shows kids that standing up for oneself and each other is the best way to diffuse a bullying situation and friendship is as easy as admitting when you have made a mistake. Wonderful art makes this book a great share for group story time as well as one on one.
