“This is a strong start for Bron’s LAYLA DOWN UNDER – a combination of an entertaining story, a strong main character, some fine lessons about being brave and trusting friends, and welcome dose of information about Down Under!” Grady Harp, Hall of Fame reviewer on Amazon

 “This chapter book is learning made fun…By the time they finish reading, they will receive a confidence boost and they might even want to try something new very soon! …The illustrations are amazing… I teach little kids and I’m certainly going to keep this book for their next story session!” Goodreads book reviewer and teacher, Saradia Chatterjee

 “Overall, Layla Learns to be Brave is brilliant. It’s entertaining for children, but comes with a clear and important message: Be Brave! It’s a book that I really wish I’d read as a child. I would definitely recommend this book for any child up to the age of eight.” Ellie Firestone, Amazon.

“One of those children’s books that has you smiling from the first page. I loved the writing tone and style which is perfect for a seven year old and really portrays the thought pattern of that age! Nice references to Australian culture too in the backdrop while the storyline evolves beautifully and is engaging.” Supermanreview, Amazon.

"Loved this story. Perfect for my daughter (aged 8) and son (aged 6). We loved the main character and the way it reflected her experiences, thoughts, and feelings. (It felt authentic while being engaging and heartwarming). The illustrations are really cute as well. This is a fantastic story for young readers, and I highly HIGHLY reccomend it." - Amazon reviewer

"My daughter loved this! Perfect book for new readers who want the thrill of reading their own "chapter book". It's so good to have a book for this age group that isn't all fairies and princesses. We are looking forward to Layla's next adventure!" - Amazon reviewer
