Otis Grows

"My kids and I all enjoy Otis!" -Jenna Greenspoon, 

Savvy Sassy Moms.

"Written for children with deeper grown-up themes, Otis Grows written by Kathryn Hast and illustrated by L.M. Phang encourages kids and parents to read the book together to discuss the changes that accompany growth and growing older and how to find diversity and beauty in a sometimes ugly world. Otis is a red onion whose mother is a yellow chicken and whose father is a blue flower, and his parents fight all the time. Upon running away from the fighting, Otis discovers that the world is still full of beauty — if we slow down and stop rushing past creeks."
