About the Book

Pip and Parker are best friends who do everything together. When Pip makes a mistake, Parker is always there to see the bright side. But what happens when Parker needs a little encouragement, too?

Perfect for story-time and bedtime sharing, Silver Linings is a funny picture book about friendship, resilience, overcoming anxiety, and staying positive in the face of adversity, from acclaimed author-artist Fiona Woodcock.

Pip and Parker live next door to each other and are such good friends that sometimes they don’t even need words to communicate. If something goes wrong, Parker (who always looks on the bright side) helps Pip see the silver lining.

When the clouds roll in, Pip sees a day spoiled by rain, but Parker sees a chance to play a fun cloud guessing game! When Pip accidently drops her sweet strawberry snack into her lemonade, she’s certain disaster has struck. But Parker finds a reason to celebrate their unexpected pink lemonade! But what will happen when Parker makes a mistake and feels blue? Can Pip cheer him up and show him the silver lining?

Acclaimed author-illustrator Fiona Woodcock’s emotionally rich illustrations accompany her imaginative celebration of friendship, positivity, and loyalty. A great read-aloud, Silver Linings is perfect for bedtime, story-time, and classrooms. A wonderful choice for social and emotional learning that celebrates the importance of empathy and staying positive. 

Critical Praise

“[Pip and Parker] are best pals who love doing stuff together . . . Pip gets upset when even small mishaps occur and she doesn’t know what to do. Parker always sees the upsides—the ‘silver linings’—of worrisome situations and dreams up happy solutions. . . . And so it goes until a messy mishap occurs to Parker. Can Pip discover the silver lining this time? The bright side is . . . she can and does—sweetly, ingeniously, and wordlessly. . . . A gentle lesson that being optimistic brings rewards, as does having a very good friend.”  — Kirkus Reviews
