Keep Your Head Up
Keep Your Head Up Hardcover – Picture Book, September 28, 2021
by Aliya King Neil (Author), Charly Palmer (Illustrator)
Teach little ones that it's okay to have a bad day in this brightly illustrated, gently affirmative picture book about keeping our heads up and letting things pass. When a child wakes up late one day, it's only the first in a series of things to go terribly awry. But the people around them show them that what's important is being kind to yourself and getting through rough days. Because, after all, tomorrow is a fresh start.
