Reviews

Starred Review, Booklist, April 15, 2013:
"Deceptively simple and perfectly paced for read-alouds, this latest from the two-time Caldecott medalist captures a child's everyday experience with gentle, joyful sensitivity."

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, February 25, 2013:
"Adults will close the book with a lump in their throats, children with a firm sense of purpose."

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, March 15, 2013:
"A wry, respectful ode to a rite of passage that's both commonplace and marvelous. This is one fun ride!"

Starred Review, School Library Journal, March 2013:
"The artist's marvelous sequences, fluid style, and emotional intelligence capture all of the momentum and exhilaration of this glorious accomplishment."
