We are excited to feature the cover reveal of The Struggle Bus, author-illustrator Julie Koon's debut picture book, coming out from Kind World Publishing on March 2022!
Check out this awesome cover:
About the Book: Sometimes things are really tough. It's just too hard, you've had enough! Grumble, rumble, bump and roar, the Struggle Bus is at your door. When a child attempts what feels like a hopeless challenge, the Struggle Bus arrives to offer a ride. Rolling, rollicking rhymes take readers on a journey of perseverance, through winding roads, storms, and breakdowns. Challenges are faced and mountains are climbed. In the end, the child discovers that through all the ups and downs, they can do hard things.
About the Author-Illustrator: Julie Koon is an author-illustrator of books for children. She is also an elementary school counselor, where she helps kids learn how to navigate their feelings and the big wide world. She lives in Decatur, Georgia with her husband and three children. Julie has taken many rides on the Struggle Bus in making this book, and is excited to share it with the world.
