A lovely story about learning to be brave, Snap! by Janet A. Holmes & Daniella Germain teaches children to face their fears with a smile instead of a frown.  A reluctant little boy gets dressed for the day and puts on his favourite crocodile mask.  He snaps at everyone he meets, believing that it is easier to frighten people away than to join in - but when he unexpectedly meets another little monster who turns out to be quite nice, he discovers that making friends is easier than it looks.

My Review: I read Snap! with my child who explained back to me in layman's terms what the plot was.  She was dead on and didn't need any coaxing.  The illustrations are childlike and attractive.  The simplicity of the storyline and illustrations along with the depth of lesson learned are a great combination!  I definitely recommend other parents read this book in anticipation of those new feelings on that first day, no matter where your child may be going.

Available May 2014 in your local bookstore or at Amazon.
