No Fits, Nilson! By Zachariah OHora
If you remember, last year we had the good fortune to meet Zachariah OHora, author of Stop Snoring, Bernard! – an adorable kids’ book that has been in heavy rotation in our collection, while he was touring on his Pennsylvania One Book, Every Young Child tour. (Stop Snoring, Bernard! was the 2012 selection of the year for PA One Book.)
OHora is also a talented illustrator. His illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, Atlantic Magazine, Bloomberg BusinessWeek and Philadelphia Magazine, among others.
When he mentioned last year that he had another project in the works, we looked forward to discovering a new favorite, complete with the imaginative illustrations we’ve come to expect from OHora.
We were not disappointed.
No Fits, Nilson! addresses the elephant in the room when it comes to raising kids. Er, the gorilla in the room? In either case, it addresses the tantrums we’ve come to know well with toddlers (and sometimes, preschoolers) and helps kids learn the art of navigating their emotions through trial-and-error, compromise and a whole lot of banana ice cream.
We’re looking forward to lots of time spent reading and visiting with Amelia and Nilson. And less time experiencing gorilla-sized fits. (We hope!)
