This book stands out among back-to-school titles, as it describes the last days of summer leading to the first day of class. Lyrical prose softly paints a sensory picture of these days. . . This is an ideal transition from one season to next, especially for children just beginning their school years.
--School Library Journal

The sights, sounds, smells, and feel of the season's end come through on each page of this picture book. Brenner's lyrical verse follows a soothing pattern. . . While the story might help prepare anxious readers for the new year, it mostly plays up the mood and energy surrounding the wind down of summer, making for a rather original take on the subject. . . . A back-to-school book refreshingly focused on the sensory feel of the familiar season.
