Eliot Schrefer, Special for USA TODAY November 29, 2015The Goodbye Book
Written and illustrated by Todd Parr
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 32 pp., ages 3-6
***½ out of four starsTodd Parr, author of 
It's Okay to Be Different, has carved out a niche for himself as "the feelings man" of picture books, and it's not hard to see why. In glossy, color-saturated pages, we're introduced to a small fish who's lost its companion. As the fish goes through many reactions to the loss, the text is directed straight at the reader, giving permission for all sorts of feelings: "You might be very sad. / You might be very mad." The art is simple and naïve, as though Parr loaded up Paint on his computer and started clicking away. With its accessible style and kindhearted text, The Goodbye Book will serve kids as a sympathetic friend during trying times.^Kansas CITY Star: Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein...Well I've found another to add to the list: Todd Parr.
