Reviews

"Ms. Becker's rich language and storytelling makes this an excellent choice for a shared read."--Sal's Fiction Addiction
"Dedicated to the world's "slowpokes, dawdlers, and lazybones," this book takes a loving look at the pleasure of slowing down."--School Library Journal
"A gentle cautionary tale about pausing to "smell the flowers" for small humans, big humans, and animals. Recommended."--Resource Links
"Perfectly pitched for preschoolers who are just beginning to understand jokes...a gentle lesson that positive alternatives to hurtling mindlessly through life do exist."--Kirkus Reviews
"This sweet short story would make a terrific read-aloud in an early years' classroom or library. "--Canadian Review of Materials
