Uh Oh Kenzo! has such a realistic flair to it that all children at some point in their journey have likely been in the same trying situation, having the day they wish never was! In the end he learns some important lessons that build his self concept. A winner!”

Uh Oh Kenzo! is a good book that teaches a good lesson. Kenzo helps me feel like doing the right thing, even after a bad day. I will read this book to my 5 year old sister, and I know she will also learn from this!”

Student, age 9

“Beautifully illustrated and sympathetically told by Kenzo himself, Uh Oh Kenzo! has an identifiable message to share. I recommend this book to young children in the early stages of their school careers and who could use some cheering up on "Uh Oh" days.”

—Laura, LitPick

"Upon reading Kenzo’s story, my child immediately felt connected to the narrative and became relaxed and open. Uh Oh Kenzo! provides a template for young students on how to navigate their world through their own eyes."

"Don’t fret the kiddos aren’t the only one that can learn from Kenzo! This story provides a stark reminder to parents not give too much power to the mistakes that we and our children make. Uh Oh Kenzo! provides the perfect opportunity to teach our children to be open about their feelings while guiding them through their own self-reflection."
