Product description


"The process of understanding emotion, especially for young children, can be overwhelming and abstract--the Blooz just might be the perfect concrete visual to help everyone get through those cranky days."

"Debut author Levis has an impressively light touch."
Publishers Weekly

"Blooz may be a blob, and he may be uninvited, but he is actually kinda cute, which makes this a nonthreatening tool for discussing negative emotions with young children."

"Children will identify with her feelings in this tale, and it will have value as a springboard for discussing sadness and how to work through it."
School Library Journal
