Debut author Kerry Docherty reminds us that even when we are having a bad day, just imagining that somewhere, right now, something beautiful is happening can bring a feeling of calm.

When Alma is experiencing the lows of unexpected disappointment, her mom offers her the wise advice that she just might feel better if she closes her eyes and pictures something beautiful that's happening in nature.

Inspired by the current pandemic, this book is a relevant but timeless reminder that somewhere in the world something beautiful is happening. Maybe it's a baby whale being born, or perhaps it's the sun coming out on a cloudy day; right now our resilient world is making something incredible happen.

When Alma feels scared because of a thunderstorm, her mommy teaches her that the best way to calm your fear is to imagine something beautiful that's probably happening right now. So she instructs her daughter to think of a mama and baby giraffe somewhere in the wild. This creates a chain reaction to help in other situations, like when you're mad or sad.

SOMEWHERE, RIGHT NOW teaches children diversion techniques to de-stress from difficult situations. The illustrations are cute and appealing to the child's eye with a softness that's appropriate for the topic. The diversion techniques are good for any emotional situation and perfect for these trying times we're living in. I love how the family comes together and encourages each other to look forward to brighter things.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to children going through a hard time and parents who are looking for healthy ways to help them sort through their emotions. The family vibes are an added bonus.
