I love this sweet little book. I Can Handle It is about a little boy who thinks he can handle anything, and he names many things, including being bored, when the pool is closed, at bedtime and so much more. He also gives alternative things he can do to help him handle each situation. Such a great book for any child to read because all children have things that bother them. I love that this book teaches children to have a positive attitude when things don’t get as they expect it to. And the illustrations by Ana Santos are so very cute. I love all of the adorable facial expression this little boy had. And the expression on each face fits perfect with the story on that page, as well as the other things on the page. It all goes together so well. This is an adorable book inside and out. A book that is a must for your child’s home library, in each daycare, preschool, and in each elementary classroom and any library. Children need this book to read and and teach them about behavior issues. This book could be a good conversation starter in the home or in a classroom. Check out this book today for you home or library. You can’t go wrong with this one. I give I Can Do It Five Stars.

  • Thank you Laurie Wright for thus wonderful interview, for ‘I Can Handle It’

Where do you get inspiration for your stories?

I have three kids and nieces and nephews, in addition to all my students over the years. There is a load of inspiration all around me. One of my favorite stories from a nephew was about pressing the elevator buttons. I heard about how he’d had a meltdown after not getting to press the button and knew it had to go into a book! 

There are many books out there about helping kids deal with worries and anxiety. What makes yours different?

It’s different because it actually works, and doesn’t come off as preachy. Kids enjoy the amusing illustrations and the outrageous possibilities of how they ‘could’ handle their problems. It all rings true for them, because they’ve had the same thoughts so often themselves. Frequently after reading it just once kids start to say the words, ‘I can handle it’, meaning they are realizing they CAN handle it!

How long have you been writing?

My first book came out in 2016, but I actually wrote it about 10 years before that.  Prior to that I didn’t write anything except lesson plans.

Where do you write?

My office is my mudroom, but I also love to carry my laptop around the house and write on the couchees or rocking chair.

How many languages has your series been published in?

I am  so grateful to be able to help children literally all around the world! So far they are being translated and sold in seven other languages.
