Solutions for Cold Feet and Other Little Problems by Carey Sookocheff + Win a copy!

Solutions for Cold Feet and Other Little Problems by Toronto writer and illustrator, Carey Sookocheff, is a sweet picture book that follows a girl and her dog as they explore solutions to six everyday problems. There are solutions for a boring day, solutions for a melting ice cream cone and of course, solutions for a cold feet. 

A playful tone runs throughout, as the girl and her dog often have very different ideas.




It’s a lovely story to curl up with on a cold winter’s day and read with your littles (it’s aimed at kids 4 to 8) and one to keep in mind for holiday gift giving.
