Reviews

* "This essential story conveys the warmth of community in just one serving." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"An ode to city life and community, this jaunt through public transit, urban farmer's markets, and corner shops highlights the interconnectedness both of Art's neighborhoods and the people in his life, as he sees friendly faces along his journey and eventually comes home to a full house of neighbors and family ready to help Art and his dad. " -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Liu-Trujillo evokes the warmth of a father-son bond in this food and family story...Art and his community model living in a compassionate world full of realistic diversity...With a recipe included at the end, this heartwarming story emphasizes the healing power of fresh food and a strong community." -- Booklist

"Liu-Trujillo's watercolor-esque illustrations add verve and specificity to each character and convey the closeness both of this extended family and the vibrant, predominantly Black and brown neighborhood in which they live. A wonderful story of a community that takes care of its own." -- Kirkus Reviews
