In this charming simple story, things are lost, things are found and, somehow, it's all just as it should be.Sometimes things are lost. A hair ribbon. A pencil. A dog on a leash. But when someone loses a thing, another person may find it, sometimes with surprising results. In this thoughtful and deceptively simple story, several things are lost, and then each is found --- not always by the person who lost it, but always by someone who can use it.Though for most young children --- and their grownups! --- losing something is a cause for stress, Carey Sookocheff's delightful picture book presents the experience in a calm, matter-of-fact tone and invites readers to consider things from a different perspective. The subtle message is one we can all learn from --- while you can't always control what happens, you can manage how you respond.

With very spare text and easy-to-follow visual storytelling, the book has a this-then-that rhythm that is reassuring and pleasant. It also begins and ends with the same girl walking her dog in the park, making for a cohesive and satisfying story. The illustrations use a limited, cool palette with the color orange signifying each of the lost items, perfect for enhancing observational skills and visual literacy. This book would work well as a jumping off point for children to create stories of their own, imagining what might have happened to something they've lost, who might have found it, and what might happen to it next.Full-color illustrations rendered with acrylic gouache and drawing pencil.
