Beatrice More and the Perfect Party

Orca Book Publishers | Orca Echoes


Hyperorganized perfectionist Beatrice More is determined to plan a spectacularly professional birthday party for her little sister, Sophie. But she is foiled at every turn: her mother insists on making a homemade cake (disaster!), her father offers up discount mismatched decorations (debacle!), guests are hard to find in their new neighborhood (dire!), and no gift seems remotely special enough (defeated!). Will Beatrice's organizational skills be enough to turn this party around, or will she need a little help from her friends and maybe even from Sophie herself?

---

"Beatrice is quirky and familiar, with well-meaning parents…An appealing family story with a sincere and goodhearted protagonist."

---

"Good lessons for kids who struggle with anxiety, perfectionism, or the ability to adapt to changing circumstances…Would serve as a good bridge from picture books to longer narratives for children learning to read independently…A great addition to any school library or personal collection. Highly Recommended."

Le Silence se glisse près de toi

Orca Book Publishers


Quand la fête est finie et que le bébé s'endort enfin, quand le chien a épuisé ses jappements et que les écrans sont éteints, le Silence s'avance à pas feutrés sur ses pattes poilues. Le Silence—une présence chaleureuse et réconfortante—se blottit douillettement comme un chat dans un rayon de soleil et nous aide à lire, à réfléchir et àtre calmes. Le Silence est un ami de l’Obscurité. Ensemble, ils adoucissent les contours déchiquetés laissés par le passage du Bruit et relâchent doucement dans la nuit les bateaux chargés de nos rêves. Quand la journée devient pénible ou que certaines émotions prennent trop de place, le Silence se glisse à côté de nous.

Voici une histoire tout en douceur, aux illustrations vaporeuses et au texte réconfortant, sur la façon de trouver le calme dans l’agitation qui nous entoure.

---

“L’album nous enveloppe de douceur et de sérénité. L’auteur a sur créer

une histoire qui met en lumière l’importance des moments de silence…

J’ai adoré cet album grâce au calme et à la douceur qui s’y dégage.

J’avais le goût de le lire en chuchotant pour garder cet esprit

silencieux. Les enfants comprendront à quel point le silence est leur

ami, qu’il est important dans la vie. Les illustrations sont

magnifiques!”

---

"This is a great book for collections that include books on intense

emotions, and may be used for kids with noise sensitivity, especially in

libraries actively collecting French language picture books."

---

"The French edition is beautifully translated by Rachel Martinez and has its own lyricism and lilt, perfect for Francophone parents and caregivers wanting bilingual options for their children."

The Silence Slips In

Orca Book Publishers


When the party's over and the baby finally falls asleep, when the dog is all barked out and the screens are dark, the Silence pads in on soft, furry feet. A warm, comforting presence, the Silence curls up in a sun-beam like a cuddly cat and helps you read, think and be still. The Silence is friends with the Dark. Together they soothe the jagged edges left when the Noise has rolled on and gently launch the boats of your dreams into the night. When the day becomes overwhelming or other feelings become too big, the Silence slips in.

With soft illustrations and soothing text, this is a quiet story about learning to find calm in the busy world around you.

---

"This ode to mindfulness, with its poetic text, offers reassurance to children often overwhelmed by their busy days so that they can find their own way back to calm and steady waters…Just right for busy families who seek balance and mindfulness.

The French edition, Le Silence se glisse près de toi, is beautifully translated by Rachel Martinez and has its own lyricism and lilt, perfect for Francophone parents and caregivers wanting bilingual options for their children. "

---

"Gently alludes to the benefits of finding contentment in quietude and how learning to do so might benefit readers for years to come."

---

"This thoughtful story focusing on mindfulness…will provide an important viewpoint for adults to share with young children."

---

"A lovely book about finding the silence and calm in life…Fits well when discussing self-regulation and mindfulness with children. Highly Recommended."

---

"A needed edition in our world today where children rush from one activity to the next, an environment where children with sensory overload issues may need calming and simply a pleasant story for the end of a long day. It will leave a child feeling protected and ready to rest."

---

"Such a nice reminder of the joy that is find in quiet moments. A nice introduction to or supplement of mindfulness. Pelletier’s illustrations add to the dreamy atmosphere every time Silence makes an appearance."

---

"As a bedtime book, this book will calm the most rambunctious after a long day. A lovely topic that promotes both the beauty of language and the power of symbolism has a wonderful message for children. Excellent Book of Note."
