Reviews
★ "This compelling picture book packs an emotional punch and will help little ones foster positive attitudes about themselves and others."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

★ "[A] contemplative picture book. . . . lulling voice and shining, jewel-toned spreads have the power to enchant."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"[A] tender, compassionate picture book. . . . Fogliano's text captures joy, wonder, tedium and sorrow. . . . Chien meets Fogliano's evocative words with lush, atmospheric illustrations awash with color."--BookPage

"The poetry here has a natural, gentle rhythm, created by purposeful line breaks and page turns. . . . Emotive pastel and colored pencil illustrations not only carefully match the time of day and activity, but also the sentiments expressed on each page. . . . Thoughtful poetry and expressive illustrations could make for a meaningful conversation. . . ."--School Library Journal

"Fogliano's prose is at once straightforward and poetic. . . . Chien's impressionis-tic pastel and colored-pencil illustrations have a soothing fluidity, but their vibrant colors and textures add a bracing note of contrast. . . . This book gives kids something to ponder"--The Horn Book
