I’m a Feel-o-Saur

I'm a Feel-O-Saur


"...the upbeat verse text assures them that feelings change throughout a day and that’s OK, invites [readers] to identify how they are feeling now, and offers practical tips for acting on or coping with positive and negative moods.… guaranteed to entertain.” ~Kirkus Reviews

Daddies Do

Daddies Do


"Evans’ rhyme and rhythm are spot-on, and the refrain ensures readers’ participation during read-alouds...The dad-child relationships ooze sweetness. These dads prepare food and bathe and soothe their children, as nurturing as can be. A solid and sweet look at the traditional and expanding roles of a father."  ~Kirkus Reviews

"The simple story is gracefully told… The gentle tone of both the story and the illustrations is a refreshing, pleasant take on the theme of helping someone in need and enjoying the bonds of friendship." ~Kirkus Reviews (see the full review).

"It’s a tender holiday reminder that generosity means the most when it’s directed at those who are truly in need." ~Publishers Weekly.
