"Miller and Barton encourage kids to be their best, follow their own drummers, and give their all in a book that is sure to bring to mind Dr. Seuss' Oh, the Places You'll Go. Adorable [and] racially diverse."--Kirkus Reviews
"Miller writes in buoyant rhyming verses. Together, Miller and Barton offer a genuine message about individuality."--Publishers Weekly
"Miller's story and Barton's illustrated characters are diverse and encourage young readers to not only be themselves, but to also do good deeds. There is an important underlying theme of treating others with respect and dignity. An excellent upbeat addition to any collection."--School Library Journal
