Reviews

"A full moon, a new word, coffee . . . children's book illustrator Blackall shares some of her favorite small pleasures, reminding grown-ups there's always something good ahead." --People


"What makes the book so wondrous is that each seemingly mundane thing on the list shimmers with an aspect of the miraculous, each fragment of the personal opens into the universal, each playful wink at life grows wide-eyed with poignancy." --The Marginalian


"You can't page through this book without feeling a renewed sense of appreciation for the everyday." --BookPage


"Infused with whimsy and hope, each page serves as a heartening reminder that even the smallest moments can be rewarding. This is the perfect pick-me-up."--Publishers Weekly
