"Finding Paz" is the picture book you wish was read to you as a child. It's a sweet fable of finding peace and managing fear. A young sailor meets a sea dragon and imagines the worst. Fear, flight and a fight follow. Skipper's scary encounter ultimately turns to unexpected friendship and new understanding. It turns out the dragon is tame: Paz, translated, makes Peace her name. She helps little Skipper face demons and learn from the experience. Paz and Skipper's story illustrates strategies for overcoming anxiety and opens a path for navigating emotions. Paz gives life lessons your family can make your own:

That the way we look at things changes the way we see.

That our feelings often have something to tell us.

That not all dragons need to be slain.

That bravery may be as simple as saying, "Hello".

By the end of this tale, told in verse, a creature quite dear helps a frightened child overcome fear.
