Reviews

Striking and cozy all at once. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Full of meaningful relationships, this picture book is a joyous, loving celebration of the African diaspora around the globe. -- Booklist

[Two] girls, while separated by an ocean, have much in common, as shown in Cunha's textured, colorful illustrations and Johnson's engaging text. -- Horn Book Magazine

Johnson's near-rhyming verse is as lulling as the sea [and] Cunha's textured soft pastels create a wistful, dreamy atmosphere. A gorgeous book that will touch every child's longing to connect with someone "out there" who is like them. -- School Library Journal

Saturated, layered art by Cunha employs visible textures to add depth to each illustration. In concert with playful, dreamlike prose, which details events over the course of a given day, motion-filled landscapes offer images "of the two of us playing/ in the same sun/ in the same sand, / hand in hand." -- Publishers Weekly
