My Friends
The vibrant illustrations and charming story of Taro Gomi's My Friends are now available in an adorable board book format. My Friends is a spirited homage to friendship, as a little girl recounts all the things she has learned from an enchanging menagerie of animal friends. "I learned to run from my firend the horse. I learned to sing from my friends the birds. I learned to ready from my friends the books. And I learned to love from a friend like you." Using simple words and bright illustrations, author-illustrator Taro Gomi shows children that sometimes knowledge can come from all kinds of friends.

Written and illustrated by Taro Gomi | Published by Chronicle Books, September 2005 | Toddler Books (Newborn to Age 2)

A Walk in the Rain with a Brain is the illustrated version of a special story Edward M. Hallowell, M.D. shares during his lectures on attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. In it, a little girl named Lucy is making her way down a rainy sidewalk when she spies, of all things, a brain -- Manfred, called Fred -- sitting forlornly in a puddle. The courtly cerebrum asks Lucy for help getting home, and as they walk along she worries that she's not smart enough. "Everyone's smart!" explains Fred. "You just need to find out at what!" Fred reassures her that each child learns and thinks differently -- and that every child has special talents.

A Walk in the Rain with a Brain is a very reassuring and entertaining book for children between the ages of 4 and 8.
