Reviews

Praise forOne Little Bag: An Amazing Journey:

* The skilled black-ink drawings lend a look of pleasant harmony to all the characters that populate the pages, from woodland creatures to humans of various ages and gender and racial presentations. Meticulous attention to composition, textures, and period detail-starting around the 1960s-makes each page a delight... Because there are no words, children are left to draw their own conclusions... Beautifully effective as both nostalgia trip and lesson in conservation. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* [The story's] message is deeply profound.... Nostalgia and love abound .... bringing tears to the eyes of readers of all ages with each detailed image.... [A] compelling and emotionally resonant addition to Earth Day curricula, especially as an inspiration for reusing items as long as possible. -- School Library Journal, starred review

* By elevating the life of an ephemeral object to the time scale of love across generations, Cole nudges readers to take a second look at the things they throw away. An author's note describes how Earth Day prodded Cole to reuse the same paper lunch bag for years. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
