Synopsis

Synopsis

A unique hardcover picture book for two to five year olds, this is the story of a lovely little girl who is nervous about many things. Noni finds a way to control her nerves and work through her anxiety, making life much more bearable for everyone!

Noni is nervous about playdates, and global warming, and most of all, about the first day of school. Her parents are worried too, and even her brother is a little wary. But Noni finds a friend, someone a little more outgoing than herself, and discovers that through friendship, she can belong and succeed in a world that once filled her with dread. The story is a universal one about the power of friendship and belonging, delightfully illlustrated by award-winning illustrator Genevieve Cote.

Praise

Praise

“. . . In Côté’s charmingly loose crayon-and-watercolor illustrations, Noni’s anxiety shows in her pink-cheeked face as she thinks about everything that could go wrong.”
The New York Times

“Côté’s gentle watercolors capture Noni’s emotional experience…. Softly lavender, monochrome illustrations depict Noni’s previous reasons for being nervous, all made right in her mother’s arms…. A charming, seemingly simple book that gets right to the heart of the matter.”
Kirkus Reviews

“The text is clarity itself, while Coté’s rough, splotchy watercolors elicit plenty of emotion from a minimum of strokes. For fearful first-timers, this strikes just the right note of reassurance.”
