Praise For Leyla

"A warm and witty celebration of family, individuality, and introspection."
— Publishers Weekly

"A lovely story of cross-species friendship, of finding peace by connecting mindfully to the present moment, and of distance making the heart grow fonder."
— Kirkus Reviews

"Reflecting both the anxiety perpetuated by our culture’s busyness and a toddler’s developmental need for independence, Bernstein’s spare narrative and adorable muted earth tone palette offer a warm and familiar story."
— School Library Journal

"Adult readers will understand that this is a lesson on meditation, and youngsters will learn that, even if they’re the quiet one in a boisterous group, a little downtime can do wonders."
— Booklist
