This latest title from the "It's Just So..." series promotes the concept of "living in the now" and being creative with what life offers

The book title begs the question and the answers deal with obstacles which become opportunities in this comical romp. Curiosity, frustration, anticipation, and a unique perspective are at the heart of this tale about Lizzy (from the "It's Just So…" book series). Primarily a picture walk, we are taken on a little journey through a day that brings personal growth, a few tears, and a good dose of laughter.


From Foreword Reviews as the 2017 Silver Medal Winner for Best Children's Picture Book: "Perfect for children in transitional stages…Vibrant illustrations and an engaging main character help young readers explore themes of resilience, courage, and perseverance."

Author Biography

Brenda Faatz has an undeniable connection with children. Some say it's because they instinctively know "one of their own." A graduate of The University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Musical Theatre, Brenda is a professional singer, dancer, and actor. Along with her husband, Peter Trimarco, she wrote the music, lyrics, and script for the original Wee Noteables musical theatre live performance series for children. Peter Trimarco was a fine arts student who graduated from Lake Forest College with a degree in literature and went on to pursue a career as an editorial cartoonist…but drawing 'grownups' stopped being fun. Before being inspired by the opportunity to co-write and illustrate a children's book with Brenda, he journeyed through life as an entertainment industry professional. From art director to executive producer to publisher of an international film magazine, he found a good deal of success before turning his efforts to creating books for children.
