Editorial Reviews

“This sweet little book is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers… The artwork is soft and realistic; JoJo and her dad are wonderfully expressive, and a note to parents and caregivers helps parents understand how to copy with their own boo-boo moments.” —Mom Read It

“This story will be reassuring to toddlers as it reminds them that boo-boos can be fixed.  There is a very helpful section for parents at the back.  An excellent choice for a home or day care library.” —Joyce’s Mystery and Nonfiction Book Reviews with some Non-fiction too!

About the book

Jo Jo is running fast and falls down.  Ouch!  She bumps her chin  hard and starts to cry ...  Jo Jo now has a boo boo!  Oh my! 

Her loving Daddy scoops her up, asks if she is okay, and kisses her boo boo.  He assures her with a loving hug that he will fix it for her.  Scared little Jo Jo resists when he gently washes her boo boo and tenderly places a bandaid over her scrape.  Daddy asks her, "Does Daddy have a  boo-boo, too?  Smiling through her tears Jo Jo sticks a Band-Aid on Daddy's nose!  

This sweet book is written in simple, relatable language and the illustrations animate the words in this "Terrific Toddlers" series.  Daddy not only nurses Jo Jo's minor mishap but also her heart as he helps her understand that small cuts and scrapes aren't so scary after all.  Included at the end of the book is a "Note to Parents and Caregivers" section that advises them to:  help their child acknowledge their fear, points out the importance of keeping your child calm and suggests that they use distractions to take the child's mind off of their minor injuries.  I highly recommend this book.
