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... Most remarkably, Yoo and Ng-Benitez together have created truly engaging child characters living in a vivid realistic world with just a few masterful lines of text and ink. -- Reading While White
