From the Publisher

“A creative, calming, and affirming book for every child.”
—Patty Wetterling, cofounder, Jacob Wetterling Resource Center

 “If families followed the advice in On Those Runaway Days, fewer kids would choose to run from home.”—Maureen Blaha, Executive Director, National Runaway Switchboard

“The simple color illustrations add a comforting touch to this highly recommended picturebook, ideal for parents (or teachers) to read aloud to children as a lead-in to talking about tough issues, and as a preventative to teach children about better options than running away before a crisis happens.”—Midwest Book Review
