"An earnest, unflashy story that has all the earmarks of becoming a staple for schools and students facing similar transitions."--Publishers Weekly "A great read-aloud any day but certainly on Teacher Appreciation Day or the last day of school."--School Library Journal "A thoroughly satisfying solution to the issue of saying goodbye."--Kirkus Reviews "Colorful, cartoonish illustrations depict the diverse kids in a familiar classroom setting with expressive and lighthearted touches. . . . This positive portrayal of a common experience offers a rosy picture of teachers and students, including Mrs. McBee's gentle reassurances and inclusive approach of appreciating each student and his or her strengths."--Booklist
