Animals at teh Office

Sarah Sommer just launched her second children’s picture book, Animals at the Office, on October 1st. While the book totes a positive message for kids regarding being yourself, adults also relate to the humorously accurate personalities featured in the book and recommend it as a great gift for adults working in an office setting. The book features hand-drawn art by Devan, bright colors, cute animal characters, and rhyming text. It tells the story of Gator who is so nervous about his first day at the office that he tries to act like the other quirky characters at the office including the slow slug, the obedient dog, the aggressive hawk, and the chatty chicken. He becomes discouraged thinking that he doesn’t fit in, so he seeks advice from his wise boss. Amazon: Instagram and Facebook: @SarahReneeSommer
