"Mighty May Won't Cry Today" is a Finalist in the 15th Annual National Indie Excellence® Awards. Finalists are determined on the basis of superior written matter coupled with excellent presentation in every facet of the final published product from cover to cover. -- NIEA

"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. " -- IndieReader

"May is a strong female protagonist, but also learns that being strong doesn’t mean suppressing all emotion. That’s a lesson that any child can benefit from. The fact that May has two moms is incidental, and as I’ve written before, we need more stories like this." -- Dana Rudolph, Mombian

"Fathers and kids will love the poetic rhymes, colorful designs and lovable 'Mighty May.' It's a beautiful story with a positive message about embracing different families and encourages an environment of inclusion from an early age. It is a great learning tool to teach kids that it's OK to cry and how to use mindful techniques to work through emotions." -- Gays With Kids

5-Star Reviews including "Mighty May is a lighthearted, yet beautiful story that sheds light on resilience, acceptance and love in our everyday lives. It's such a cute story following May's challenges and triumphs on her first day of school. I also can't help to notice how stylish Mommy and Mama are!" -- Amazon

5-Star Reviews including "A beautiful, charming, inclusive book about the emotions that overwhelm us all at times, and how it's ok to feel them fully. The story is simple and gentle, told wonderfully through the eyes of Mighty May who learns an important lesson on a very big day for her. The illustrations are breathtaking, vibrant and fit perfectly May's personality and the message. The ending definitely made me tear up, a lot, and that's ok! Highly recommend to children and adults of all ages. " -- Goodreads

"I’m going to admit, usually, I don’t enjoy self-published books, but there are always exceptions, and Mighty May Won’t Cry Today is one of them." -- Margaret Kingsbury, Baby Librarians

"I absolutely love Mighty May Won't Cry Today. It's a story about grit and perseverance, and teaches children about emotional intelligence and the fact that it's okay to experience a wide range of emotions. That's actually really good for our brains because when we make mistakes and we learn new things, our brains GROW. I highly recommend Mighty May Won't Cry Today." -- Shira Levy, School Psychologist and Positive Psychology Practitioner, BMORE Thrives founder

"Writing a book is hard. Writing a good book is even harder. Writing a good book for children is in many ways even harder than that. So it’s rare for me as an adult nonfiction author to have a children’s book catch my eye as an example of good writing." -- Shane Snow, Award-Winning Journalist and Entrepreneur
