A Junior Library Guild Selection

"With its inviting story and imaginative illustrations, this picture book could spark curiosity about faraway places and encourage global awareness in young children." --Booklist, starred review

"Collages rendered with cut, layered paper and finished off with painted textures and rubber stamps create a warm, earthy atmosphere . . . A comforting story that will prompt exploration at home or in school." --Kirkus Reviews

"Kostecki-Shaw's mixed-media illustrations have a richness of texture, pattern, and color wonderfully suited to depicting the dazzling array of multicultural mementos . . .The author's look back never falters in conveying a child's perspective, in a cozy and loving tale that includes an important message of global connection." --School Library Journal

Through pages that tell of trips to Cameroon, China, Mali, Mexico, Sumatra, and Zimbabwe, among other places, the creator conveys the idea that there are many ways to be in the world; she also imagines one way that parents can offer glimpses of its bounty as an introduction to broader experience." --Publishers Weekly
