The Little Crooked Bookshelf

it's tough to lose your balloon by Jarrett J. Krosoczka

This week's pick is from cottager Kara LaReau.

What it's all about
It’s tough to lose your balloon, and it’s sad to drop your sandwich in the sand. But thanks to this book by renowned author-illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka, readers will discover that there can be an upside to just about every bad situation.

Why it's on The Little Crooked Bookshelf…
We’re big fans of Krosoczka’s other books, especially his zany Lunch Lady series and his super-fun picture books, like Punk Farm and Good Night, Monkey Boy. But it’s also nice to see him lend his considerable talents to this more contemplative tale.

Our favorite lines…
"It hurts to get a scrape…but you’ll get a cool bandage. (It might even glow in the dark!)"

Our favorite illustration…

Why kids will love it…
Simple, sweet illustrations will engage young readers to look for the silver lining in every cloud.

Why grown-ups will love it…
A lovely lesson in resilience, perfect for sharing any time, but especially during tough times.
