A fine choice for multicultural units as well as youngsters dealing with differences. Suki's story will appeal to other independent-thinking girls as well.--Booklist
Jorisch's watercolours creations capture the spunk of the free-thinking Suki.--Montreal Review of Books
An absolutely delightful tale ...--Asian Week
A wonderful story about being yourself, with the added bonus of teaching readers a little about Japanese culture.--Kirkus Reviews
Overall, this is an appealing story of courage and independence.--School Library Journal
Uegaki's first picture book is a joyful tribute to a little girl's inner and outer sense of style. Uegaki conveys Suki's determination to honour her grandmother and remember a favourite day with language as colourful as the all-important kimono. Suki's Kimono successfully achieves that delicate balance between plot, language, illustration, and design that is so critical when creating memorable picture books.--Quill & Quire, Starred Review
The title character in the appealing story is a free spirit who wavers only briefly in her dedication to her own feelings.--The New York Times
The story, written for ages four through eight, rings true on many levels.--ForeWord Magazine
