Riley Knows He Can

Riley Knows He Can is the second book featuring adorable youngster Riley (his freckles slay me <3 ). Published 25th April 2018 by the Ella Riley Group, it's 38 pages and available in ebook and paperback formats. Author Davina Hamilton and illustrator Elena Reinoso also teamed up on the first book, Riley Can Be Anything (review here).

This book talks about something almost everyone deals with - stage fright, nervousness, and performance anxiety.  It's written in rhyming prose which will add to the reading enjoyment for kids. The quirky artwork illustrates the text very well.

These are really positive, non judgemental, useful books for all kids.They show diversity in a positive non-threatening, non-strident manner.  The mum and dad are normal, supportive, wholesome. I really liked this book and hope that Riley (and family) have lots more adventures in store.

This would make a superlative reading circle or bedtime read for the youngest and a good selection for primary school libraries.

Just really nice!

Five stars

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
