Welcome back to the 2021 edition of Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
For those that have been with us, it's been a long ride...and a good one too, if I do say so myself! 2020 might have sucked biscuits big time, but the reading was still good, if not great, and we're looking to the future for a bigger, brighter, better tomorrow, and that all starts today! So, I wish you and yours a very happy new year, and let's kick things off with a bang as we focus in on our first review of the year starring a new title from Precocity Press!
This a book that explores the sometimes overwhelming amount of feelings that surround us with acceptance, understanding, and the right perspective to see that there is room for more than one within a group, within a family, or within our self. There is no right or wrong way to feel, there is just YOU....and YOU are quite perfectly perfect just the way you are. Whether silly like our scrambled egg, sensitive like our poached friend, or effervescently pleasant like mister sunny side up, each of us experiences SO MANY feelings throughout a day, throughout a week, throughout our lives and none of them are less valid than any other. The colorful illustrations combined with witty rhymes takes readers on a memorable journey that will not only leave them with a better understanding of all those emotions that can run wild, sneak in, or surprise us, but a fun new way to help explore and express those wide ranging feelings. Oh and you might have a craving for eggs when you're finished too...just trust me on this one!

About the illustrator...
Gabriella Urbina is from Sweden, a country where 400,000 wild moose are roaming free in the
woods. Gabriella grew up an only child among trolls, elves, and other mystical forest creatures
and developed an affection for dreaming, drawing, and reading, which earned her a degree in Fine
Art and, later, a job within digital media. After 25 years of freezing cold winters Gabriella moved to
the sunny beaches of California and started working as an artist for Hollywood movies. For the last
five years Gabriella has been working in the children’s picture book industry as a writer and illustrator and is now living in Venice Beach with her family.
