"The story provides a lighthearted way to discuss perspective and would serve as effective preparation for a family or school outing."--Booklist "April 15, 2020"
"The story is simply and realistically told from Simon's perspective.....The illustrations are done in ink outlines with watercolor washes which perfectly compliment the text and give the book an old-fashioned feel. Many children will enjoy reading about Simon because they will find him relatable and recognize similar experiences from their own lives."--School Library Connection "May/June 2020"
