Praise

“[Little Pup’s] joy and pride [are] infectious. Kirk’s many animal characters are highly expressive in both facial expression and body language, especially Little Pup’s eyebrows, and Little Duck is a model of empathy for young readers. . . . Little readers will find a ready role model here for tackling their own fears.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The shifting viewpoints and angled composition, along with straightforward text, convey the realistic disorientation of grappling with a fear that others have seemed to easily overcome. Kirk’s simple color palette, composition, and seasonal-styled backgrounds illustrate the time it takes little Little Pup to reach his goal, focusing on his kid-relatable emotional journey and the gentle encouragement from friends and family. . . . This empowering picture book teaches little ones that it’s okay to seek support and to take on challenges at their own pace.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“The illustrations give Little Pup’s crisis oomph by contrasting the muted colors of the background with the deeply saturated red slide. A charming story that shows how tiny steps of repeated exposure, visualization, modeling, and practice can help kids overcome their fears.” —Booklist
