If you have a child that marches to their own beat, this is book you are going to want to add to your library. Sarah can’t stop screaming, she just loves how it makes her feel. But one day she loses her voice. This book celebrates big personalities, and how you can still be yourself even if you have to find new ways to express yourself.
I love this sweet story but especially love the vibrant pictures in this book. As the mother of a child with a spirited personality, I relate to Sarah’s zest for life – and volume!
About the book:

This bright picture book celebrates Sarah’s spunky and endearing personality while showing that she can still be herself, with or without screaming.
