READERS FAVORITE -  5 STARS 
In It’s Just So..., a children’s book by Brenda Faatz and Peter Trimarco, there is quite a whole lot going on. Children’s books are almost defined by the near necessity to coordinate a pleasing complement of both words and pictures, but rarely do the creators see fit to multi-layer such a project in anticipation of the reader “growing older.” In other words, to make their work speak differently to children of different ages. Such a challenge would seem a wee bit risky, but success is often its own reward.
