My favourite children's book of 2018 is...

book cover image Adrian Simcox Does NOT Have a Horse" by Marcy Campbell
"Sometimes we have to learn to see with kindness." It doesn't come easily for Chloe. We all know someone just like her or perhaps we've even been a Chloe at one time. She adamantly voices her opinion while laying out the facts- there is no way someone like Adrian Simcox can have a horse. Page by page the author and illustrator gently guide Chloe to a place of understanding and kindness. Chloe's mom is patient and skilfully walks her out of her comfort zone and into a world of colour, imagination and empathy. The world definitely needs more people like Chloe's mom and Adrian Simcox. This book is perfect for a gift or sharing with the Chloes and Adrians in our life. Frances C. Children and Youth
