"Full of heart and more than a little spunk, this book teaches kids that fear stands no chance against friendship and courage. Where were The Fix-It Friends when I was seven years old?"
--Kathleen Lane, author of The Best Worst Thing
"Fears are scary! But don’t worry: the Fix-It Friends are here with step-by-step help -- and humor too.”
—Fran Manushkin, author of the Katie Woo series
"The humor is spot-on, and the stories pull kids in, teaching without preaching, encouraging children to be active problem-solvers in their own lives."
―Dr. Dawn Huebner, Ph. D., child psychologist and creator of the What-to-Do Guides for Kids series
"An empowering resource for kids — and they're just plain fun to read.”
—Lauren Knickerbocker, Ph.D., Co-Director, Early Childhood Service,

Praise for Now I See You:
"Hilariously inspiring [...] Kear's book is a showstopper."
"A frightening diagnosis is only start of the story [...] "Now I See You" is a funny, sassy, yet poignant story."
-- New York Times
"We're here to tell you that Kear's memoir is one of 2014's best books, and one that will have you alternating between laughing and crying from page to page."
"Her story is spunky and full of a zest for life that will open the eyes of readers to the little joys of the world. A tender memoir about love, life and going blind."
“Kear is earthy and daringly frank in this never-boring, unusually illuminating account of living with diminishing sight as she, ultimately, takes a refreshingly glass-half-full approach to life. Funny and poignant.”
