Reviews

"Beautifully controlled pacing and an immensely satisfying rainbow resolution make this book an effective refutation of frenzied schedules." --Kirkus, starred review

"Portis has a gift for creating rich visual narratives for young children; this one will resonate with their caretakers, too." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Economy and affection give this story the dimensions of a classic." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Portis fills her friendly, accessible images with predictive details. Observant children will notice slickers, umbrellas, and other clues of things to come throughout the pages (is that a rainbow pop he points to on the ice-cream truck?), adding richness to this sweet story about appreciating life's simple pleasures." --The Horn Book, starred review
