"Trigiani's sentimental prose is matched by Bates's nostalgic, rose-hued watercolor, gouache, and pencil illustrations; the pairing makes for a heartfelt and sensitive holiday homage." -Publishers Weekly

"The light pink pages, cheerful illustrations, and homespun authenticity of the text will appeal to children. The cozy Appalachian mountain setting shines through. A sweet story highlighting nonromantic love during the Valentine season." -Kirkus Reviews

"A sweet read for anyone who appreciates simple expressions of joy and the tenderness of a child's holiday cheer." -School Library Journal

"Narrator Jasmine Guy infuses warmth into this classic children's Valentine's Day story. Moreover, Guy's warmth carries the audiobook's message of unconditional love as demonstrated by the family and their home on this and every day. Guy's storytelling and the upbeat melody of the music may beckon listeners to play this sweet tale on loop." -AudioFile
