Reviews

"Umrigar's story celebrates a mother's love, her daughter's individuality, and the contributions of extended family."---Publishers Weekly
"[W]ill strike a chord with both new mothers and children, who love to hear about their beginnings. The ending spreads tug heartstrings.... Umrigar's flights of fancy may lead parents and children to ponder their own specific traits and what might have led to them."--Kirkus Reviews
"A warm and lovely bedtime poem."
--Dav Pilkey, Caldecott Honor Award-winning creator of The Paperboy
