In Skylaar Amann’s gentle, beautifully illustrated picture book, two best friends learn that sometimes everyone needs a quiet, safe space to just be.

Ren and Kit are the best of friends, always doing everything together. But when Ren needs some quiet time to herself, she chooses to hide away in an unlikely place. Kit doesn’t understand, but she’s willing to listen and learn. And in the end, they both realize that sometimes, everybody needs a hole in the ground.

Alone Sometimes speaks directly to the need we all occasionally have for a safe space where we can hide away from the frustrations of the world.

She lives in Oregon, where she enjoys exploring tide pools, playing video games, making things, and looking for holes in the ground.
