"Holly Elissa Bruno is one of my favorite keynote speakers and presenters. She writes as she speaks--as if she was addressing you personally! She brings you along in her journey of second chances, provides you with strategies for dealing with common challenges and inspires you to take the leap with her!"--Debbie Silver, Child Care Resources of Rockland

"Holly Elissa Bruno has written a delightful book which I can highly recommend to anyone seeking self-improvement, reflection and enlightenment. Holly Elissa weaves together stories, practical examples, quotes and reflective questions as she urges us to have compassion and model compassion. This is a book about choices, learning and letting go--it's a book you can read cover to cover in one sitting easily and then dip in and out of as inspiration is required. Holly Elissa's inimitable humour threads throughout this little gem of a book as she tackles the hard subjects like change, failure, and conflict in both confronting and deeply reflective ways."--Toni Christie, Childspace Early Childhood Institute "The Comfort of Little Things is a true gem! Weaving together findings from neuroscience, anecdotes from practitioners in the field, sage advice from her Heart to Heart radio guests, and lessons learned from her own emotional journey of second chances, Holly Bruno presents the fundamental truths for how to live more deeply, meaningfully, and spiritually."--Paula Jorde Bloom, Founder, McCormick Center for Early Childhood Leadership "The who, what, when, why, and where of becoming a more reflective early childhood practitioner and embracing second chances to get even better at it."--Kay Albrecht, Innovations in Early Childhood Education "This book is a kind spirited and good-hearted exploration of second chances that is beautifully focused on the needs and challenges of educators. If you've ever felt in need of a do-over, this book can help you find the questions and answers to make it very worthwhile, and the mindset and attitude that make it possible."--Rick Kirschner, Keynotes, Training, Coaching, The Art Of Change LLC The Comfort of Little Things: An Educator's Guide to Second Chances blends a discussion about leadership with one of educational development, shares the author's personal story and blends it with advice from the educational and neuroscience fields, and offers research-backed stories and examples paired with reflection questions to consider how to integrate spiritual and professional ideals with an educator's growth and teaching process. This might seem like a lot to include under one cover; but the fact that Holly Elissa Bruno's approach is so wide-ranging makes it a surprisingly easy read, perfect for busy educators who want a pointed yet accessible survey.--The Bookwatch: September 2015, The Education Shelf
