Helping Kids Through Tough Times
For nearly 25 years, I’ve written books for children of all ages, from babies to teens. Most of the books are designed to address kids’ social and emotional (SEL) needs. My hope has always been that my books might provide skill-building, reassurance, and comfort to children with all types of challenges, in all kinds of communities.
During our current time of uncertainty and worry, we’re all looking for ways to focus on mental health and connection. I hope you’ll find useful resources here.

Revised and Updated
A new edition of an old favorite. I’m so happy this book has stayed in print nearly a decade and is now revised and updated for a new generation of kids on the spectrum.
