Description


Award-winning author Crescent Dragonwagon teams up with award-winning Julián Is a Mermaid illustrator Jessica Love to present a powerful updated edition of a classic picture book that asks a tough question and answers it with humanity, humor, and grace.

In this timeless picture book classic, a child asks, Will it be okay? That bee sting, that thunderstorm, those powerful feelings, losing a loved one.

Will It Be Okay? Yes—yes, it will.

“This tender tale is a balm for worried children in troubled times and a model of comfort for caregivers to offer them . . . More than OK. Much more.”—Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

“With empathy, the creators imagine a parent with an uncanny ability to hear a child’s concerns, to hold the emotions that accompany them, and to think and talk about them.”—Publishers Weekly
