"Sweetly illustrated by Erica De Chavez, MIGHTY MAY WON'T CRY TODAY by Kendra & Claire-Voe Ocampo uses an easy-to-follow, rhythmical text to tell the story of May's first day of school. While a bit challenging, she manages to get through a few mishaps with her head held high. The book, featuring the dynamics of a family with two same-sex parents, helps children learn that crying is OK."-IndieReader
"A picture book about social-emotional skills has to do double duty, conveying a straightforward solution to an age-appropriate problem while also being fun to read. Kendra and Claire-Voe Ocampo's Mighty May Won't Cry Today aces the assignment.
Erica De Chavez's illustrations pop with festive shades of orange, gold, pink, and blue, expressing May's spunky personality and the nurturing home that her two moms provide.
Can I just say how sweet is it to have diverse families be a normal part of the background rather than the main issue, or, as in my childhood, completely absent from children's media? Society has come a long way. -North Street Book Prize 2021, Honorable Mention Children's Picture Book
