2015 год. Losing a balloon. Getting wet socks. Having your ice cream melt more quickly than you can eat it. All classic disappointments of childhood, bringing on tears and tantrums. It's Tough to Lose Your Balloon is about these moments--and about finding the silver lining when you're very, very sad or mad. Filled with humor and insight, and perfect for kids and their grown-ups, this book was inspired by a real-life incident in Jarrett's own family, when his wife found a creative way to comfort their daughter as her balloon floated into the air. With lively illustrations and spot-on humor, It's Tough to Lose Your Balloon helps children navigate childhood indignities while making them laugh at the same time.
