The artwork has beautifully established details. From the titles of the many, many books showcased on shelves, in boxes, and the hands of readers to the textured hair of the diverse characters throughout the story, there are little bits of nuanced representation that show that bookstores are for every person and every interest.
--Kirkus Reviews

With engaging simplicity, the creators combine the intimate world of an independent bookstore with the rhythmic verse of a bedtime read. . . . Restrained images both evoke the sensibility of and hint at picture books past, employing warm, layered textures, sure black lines, and saturated colors. . . an inclusive volume that celebrates the bookstore as a cozy, comfortable--and crucial--corner of community.
