"Renata's wren encounter proves magical, one most children could only wish to experience outside of this lovely story." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"Excelling in natural illustrations with a slightly cartoonish bent, Garoche offers fine-lined pencil art colored digitally in a soft color palette. This gentle story, with its respect for family, nature, construction, and collaboration, will lift readers' spirits as surely as Renata boosts the wrens." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
