Reviews

This brilliant tapestry of browns may spark discussions about identity and nature. --Kirkus Reviews

Lyrically narrated... Kelkar follows intergenerational members of a brown-skinned family walking out-of-doors and beholding brown-hued elements of a changing landscape... In lustrous autumnal hues, debut illustrator Sofi's rich digital art captures a variety of natural landscapes via images both majestic and familiar. --Publishers Weekly

A baby's homecoming is a reminder of the joy found in the color brown, a cozy -message that few readers will want to miss. -Lovely. --School Library Journal
