Praise For Miracle Melts Down

“Few picture books directly address the subject of personal space in such an accessible way. Wells’ details of the kindergarten classroom are spot-on, and, as always, her illustrations, perfectly capture young children’s body language and emotions.”
-ALA Booklist

“Wells’ Kindergators are delightful alligators, each with a personality all its own [and] there are some valuable lessons in problem solving and expressing oneself, for both children and educators.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“This first book in the Kindergators series tackles socialization issues. Step-by-step, [Wells] builds a sense of drama while showing that she knows kindergarten inside and out. Kids will appreciate her faith in their inventiveness and sense of community.”
