Reviews

In this small book, every square inch of every page is full of color and visual depictions of the poem's evocative lines. The palette in Pippin's illustrations--every shade of brown and warm terracotta earth tones--echoes the poem's sentiments... [a] beautiful, inviting presentation of Acevedo's poem.--Booklist (starred review)
An incredible amount of reflection appears in this slim volume, making this a wonderful choice for group discussions. Brave, sharp, and powerful.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
