Staff Reviews

As a kid, everything seems bigger in the present moment. Krosoczka’s new picture book is full of humor and wisdom to help guide us past life’s little hurdles, turning mountains not into molehills, but rather a vantage point from which to see the brighter side of things."

--Matt, Longfellow Books

Lost balloons. Melted ice cream. Babysitters.

Life as a kid can be pretty daunting. But don’t let these troubles get you down. With the right attitude, a hurdle can become a hammock and an obstacle can become an opportunity!
Veteran picture book creator Jarrett J. Krosoczka teaches kids to look on the bright side of things. With lively illustrations and spot-on humor, It’s Tough to Lose Your Balloon champions resilience and helps children navigate childhood indignities while making them laugh at the same time.
