Praise for Whatever Comes Tomorrow

“An inspiring, visually appealing read filled with tools to help manage uncertainty.”

Kirkus Reviews

STARRED REVIEW! Pase Lo Que Pase Mañana
“Children will find themselves in the pages…and will find hope and encouragement in embracing the present. VERDICT: An excellent addition to Spanish picture book collections for children, and especially needed in the topics of worrying and anxiety.”

 

School Library Journal

“In rhymes that first acknowledge and then reassure, Gardyn Levington counsels fortitude in the face of the unknown”


Publishers Weekly

“Whatever Comes Tomorrow is, for my money, just about the closest thing to a hug you can get from a picture book. The lyrical, comforting, affirming text makes me think of the late Amy Krouse Rosenthal and that very special touch she made on me and so many others. This is a book that sees your worries, your anxiety, your fears, and just holds space to feel them. The text doesn’t dismiss those worries, or minimize, or distract. Rather, it acknowledges, honors, and affirms….Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful.”

Matthew Winner, librarian, teacher, and creator of The Children’s Book Podcast

“The comforting, rhyming text and lovely, flowing illustrations show that worries are temporary and empowers kids to believe in themselves. Whatever Comes Tomorrow belongs in the offices of every school counselor and child therapist.”


Donna Cangelosi, Psy.D. Child Psychologist
