"Gorgeously textured and colored . . . witty and humorous. . . Smith soars in this earnest, meditative work about longing, the joy of interaction, and family. Absolutely radiant." --Kirkus, starred review

"A kaleidoscopic look at nature imbued with a playful love of language that young readers can't fail to embrace." --Booklist, starred review

"One of the book's delights is its shifting moods and colors, which feel like the movements of an orchestral work... organically formed... vivid and clean." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"There is much to savor and explore in this cleverly crafted picture book, and readers will glean more with each perusal. A must-have." --School Library Journal, starred review

"This is a book straight from the thoughts of a young child, with the feel of a daydream... an emotion-filled journey." --The Horn Book
