The simply written story introduces aspects of urban living in an appealing way... Readers who enjoy Lily's upbeat story, the first beginning-reader book in the publisher's new Dive into Reading series, will also want to check out Want to Play?, the simultaneously published second volume about Lily and her friends. -- Booklist

A debut early reader from Yoo and Ng-Benitez introduces a refreshingly diverse cast of characters in an urban setting. -- Kirkus Reviews

While Paula Yoo has written excellent books for older readers, she proves herself to be just as good at writing for new readers, which is no easy task...
